Applying for Postgraduate Taught Courses

Apply online

You can apply online for many of our postgraduate taught courses. To do this, please use the course search to find the prospectus entry for the course you are interested in and click 'Apply online now'. 

Please note that if you want to apply for more than one course and only some of these have an option to apply online, you will need to apply for the others using the Postgraduate Application Form.

Paper application form

If the course you wish to apply for doesn’t have an online application option, you will need to complete the Postgraduate Application Form. There are exceptions for some professional courses – the course information on our on-line prospectus will give you more information in these cases.
