Applying for a postgraduate course

Applying for a postgraduate course

Most of our postgraduate course pages have an Apply Now button for online application.

Depending on the course you apply for, the the application forms may ask you for information about previous qualifications, residence status and nationality, previous relevant employment (particularly for healthcare-related courses) as well as general personal details. If you have been a student with us before and still have your student ID, please have that ready. 

Throughout the application process we keep in touch with you by email, so you'll need to give us an email address which you use regularly.

For professional courses such as teaching, healthcare and policing, you'll be required to attend an interview.

Similarly, applicants for art and performance-based courses are invited to provide a portfolio of work, or to prepare for an interview/audition/workshop as appropriate. Some courses allow you to submit an ePortfolio.

If you are asked to attend an interview, you will be provided with detailed online resources to enable you to prepare.
