How to Apply

General Information

Please consult the Master's and Research Degrees programme information sections to view individual programme details, programme specifications, research subject areas and guidance on individual programme entry requirements.  

Applicants to Research Degree programmes (MPhil/PhD or DrPH) are recommended to contact potential supervisor(s) prior to submitting a formal application to the School. 

Start Your Application

Applicants are permitted to submit one application form only per admissions cycle. Master's degree applicants can select up to two programme choices; these will be processed according to the selection order. Please note that there will be a late application fee for MSc applications received on or after 1 June 2017*.

*Late Application Fee

Applicants who submit applications for Master's degrees only on or after 1 June 2017 will be required to pay an application fee of £100 at the point of submission, which will be deducted from the balance of fees payable upon registration. If the application does not result in registration, the application fee will not be refunded. No application fee will apply to applications submitted on or before 31 May 2017.

Closing Dates

All applicants are encouraged to apply as early as possible to ensure availability of a place and a timely decision on their application. This is particularly important for applicants with sponsorship deadlines.

We recommend that you submit applications as early as possible to avoid disappointment. Programmes may close after an application has been received but before an application has been considered. Please note that there will be a late application fee for MSc applications received on or after 1 June 2017*. 

PhD Programmes

Registration for MPhil and PhD programmes takes place at three entry points throughout the academic year only. These are on the first day of each academic term.  The corresponding application deadlines for each registration entry point are as follows:

Please note, research degrees applications submitted after the advertised dates will be considered for the subsequent term's registration entry point. Additionally, the above deadlines are indicative of the minimum timeframe required to process a complete research degree application from start to finish and do not guarantee entry at the next registration entry point. The majority of applications will take considerably longer than this. If registering on a particular date is important to you then please apply as far in advance as possible.

The DrPH degree programme has one fixed entry point at the start of the Autumn term.

Funding Applications

Applicants planning to apply for funding from the School for either a taught Master's or Research Degree programme should ensure they are aware of the closing dates of the various funding opportunities. Please check the funding section of our website for full details.
