I want to apply for an MA programme to start in September 2017, when can I submit my application?


Applications for 2017 entry are currently being accepted. The School of English does not have a final deadline for MA applications and will consider applications until the start date of the course. Applicants must consider the arrangements that they will need to make if they are made an offer (ie. accommodation arrangements, visa applications, securing of tuition fees, etc.) and should ensure that they apply in time to make these arrangements. Modules will be allocated to existing offer holders in early August, so applicants who are made an offer after this time may have a more limited choice of modules to choose from. For this reason, all candidates are encouraged to apply before the end of July where possible.

Students wishing to apply for funding must apply for an academic place before submitting their application for any scholarship, and should therefore check the deadlines for available scholarships at the postgraduate scholarships database.
