All postgraduate programmes have September and, in many cases, January intakes. We advise non-EU international applicants to apply at least two-three months before the enrolment deadline, to allow for processing and documentation to be received and for sponsorship for student visas to be issued.

For Home and EU applicants as well as non-EU applicants based in the UK, the deadline for applications is 10 working days before enrolment. Non-EU applicants based outside the UK must apply 31 days before enrolment.
