Application deadlines

We advise students to apply as early as possible before the start of their degree. Nearly all taught programmes start in September. Some of our programmes have a specific deadline and this is normally indicated on the individual course page.

Master in Management (MiM):

Our Master in Management programme had a deadline of 28th February 2018 for International applicants. We have now reopened for International (non-China) applicants. The new deadline for this programme is31st July 2018.

Information for Chinese nationals - Unfortunately, due to very high demand for this programme, we are unable to process applications from Chinese nationals received after the deadline of 28th February 2018. Applications submitted for this date will be withdrawn.

Home and EU applications for Master in Management should be submitted to the University by 31st July 2018.

International Deadlines:

For practical reasons relating to the issuing of visas, we ask Postgraduate Taught students who will require visas to study in the UK to apply no later than 31st July of the year in which you intend to start your studies (i.e. 31st July 2018 to begin your studies in September 2018).

If we have not received your application by this date, it may be too late for the Admissions Team to make a decision on your application in time for you to apply for your visa and arrive before the start of term. If we receive late applications, we may still consider them, but may make an offer only for the following academic year. Please see our Postgraduate Taught Admissions Policy for further information.
