How to apply
We accept applications for postgraduate research study throughout the year, and you can apply up to a year before your intended start date.
Our start dates are January, April, July and September. For overseas students we advise that you apply at least three months before you intend to start your studies in the UK, thereby allowing enough time to process your application and for you to apply for a visa.
Before submitting we would recommend discussing with us your chosen area of research - either contact the relevant member of our academic staff or the postgraduate admissions team.
