How to apply

Applying for a master's in our School is straightforward with the University's online application system.

Staged admissions

Certain courses are subject to a staged admissions process - more details about which you can read below.

Our MSc courses commence in September and we accept applications throughout the year. You can submit your application up to a year prior to your intended start date.

For overseas students we recommend your application be sent at least three months before you intend to start your studies in the UK. This will ensure there is enough time to process your application and apply for a visa.

Be sure to make your application through the University's online application system by following the link at the bottom of the page.

Staged admissions process

We operate a staged admissions process for the following courses: MSc Management of Projects; MSc Commercial Project Management; MSc Engineering Project Management; MSc Construction Project Management and MSc Structural Engineering.

This is a competitive application process and preference will be given to applicants with grades above our minimum entry requirements.

If we make you an offer, you will have eight weeks in which to accept. Offers that are not accepted within the eight-week period will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate in the next application stage.

We will aim to give you a decision on your application in the decision period for your application stage. However, in some instances it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next stage due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received. We will contact you with an update on your application in the decision period if this is the case.

Please note: all places are subject to availability and some courses may close before the later stages. We therefore recommend that you apply early in the admissions cycle to secure a place with us. Applications received after the final deadline of 1 May 2019 may be considered at our discretion if places are still available.

Applicants who are given a conditional offer of a place must demonstrate that they have met all the conditions of their offer of study by Wednesday 31 July 2019.

For further details of deadline dates and deposit requirements please check the relevant course listing.
