International applicants

As an international applicant we recommend you use the services of our overseas representatives to make your application.  

If you are a non UK/ EEA applicant we advise you to visit the Home Office website to check visa entry requirements for studying in the UK.

Step 1 – find your course

Our full list of postgraduate courses can be found in our coursefinder. Please make sure that you are able to meet the following requirements of your chosen course before you apply:

If you have not yet met the entry requirements (e.g. you’re still studying for the appropriate qualifications) you can still apply for a course.  You may receive an offer of a place on the condition that you meet the requirements before you start your course. Please email postgraduate admissions for any enquiries concerning our Masters courses.

The Steps to Postgraduate Study website, sponsored by the UK funding bodies, provides information for UK, EU and international students who are thinking about applying for taught programmes. 

Step 2 – apply

Apply online and you will be able to login and track the progress of your application at any time.

Saving your application

You can save your application at any time so you do not need to fully complete it in one session. However your application will be deleted after six weeks if it is not submitted.

Supporting documentation

Make sure you have all your supporting documents scanned and ready to upload with your online application. All documents should be in English, or sent with certified translations into English. Without copies of the required documents we will be unable to make you an offer.

Required documents include:

  • degree certificate and academic transcripts
  • evidence of English language proficiency
  • scanned copies of any UK visa/permits you hold currently or have previously held if you are applying as an international student

If you are given an offer you will not be able to register as a student of the University until we have seen and accepted the original hard copies of your academic documents.


You need to submit names and contact details for two referees in support of your application and it is your responsibility to contact them to request references. The University will not contact referees on your behalf.
Download our reference request form for your referees to complete and return in a sealed envelope to your academic school. If you are unsure if your references are acceptable please contact your academic school directly.

For full guidance on submitting references please see our taught postgraduate admissions policy

Once you have submitted your application we will send you an acknowledgement email which includes your application ID Number and login details so you can track your application process. Please remember to always quote your ID Number whenever you contact the University.

If you would prefer not to apply online you can download an application form

Step 3 – we process your application

Your academic school may contact you directly if they require any further information or for example, you are invited for an interview or audition.

Step 4 – we let you know our decision

If your application is successful you will receive an offer letter. Occasionally the school may think that it is more appropriate to offer you a place on a different postgraduate course. In this case a change of course offer will appear in the processed applications section of the application menu page.

Step 5 – respond to your offer

You can accept, decline or defer your offer online. If you require a visa to study in the UK, please read our visas and immigration pages carefully to find out what you need to do next.

If you need a Tier 4 student visa to study in the UK, you will require a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) from the University. In order to be assigned a CAS you are required to pay a tuition fee deposit of £1,500. You will be prompted to make this payment once you have supplied all the necessary information.
