How to Apply

(For academic year 2022/23 only)

What do I need to include in my application?

Please check your qualifications match the entry requirements for the course you are applying for.

When reviewing applications particular attention will be paid to academic performance. Given the competition for places, preference will be given to applicants who have or who are projected to exceed our minimum requirements.

As part of your online application you will be able to upload scanned documents.

Where possible please merge connected documents so you upload fewer documents, e.g. merge your degree transcripts and certificates together.

If we require any further information we will ask for it.  Please make sure you read any requests carefully and provide the correct information as we will not chase you further.

Your application must include the following:

  • A copy of your degree certificate and transcript. If you are still studying, please provide your latest transcript plus a list of modules yet to be studied.

If you apply before the application deadline for a particular stage, as shown below, you will normally receive a response on or before the decision by date.
