After you've applied
So you've submitted an application to study for a research degree with us – what happens next?
You’ll receive an acknowledgement email and we’ll start to process your application. Please be aware that it usually takes a minimum of 6 weeks to assess your application.
We will keep in touch with you throughout this time, with news and information about the University, and don't forget you can log into the Application Portal to track the progress of your application.
If your application is successful, we’ll send you an email with details of any conditions (for instance, related to outstanding results).
You can secure your place even if you haven't met all of your conditions yet
To accept your offer you can log back into the Application Portal and accept our offer, which conditionally secures your place.
Have you met your offer conditions?
If you were awaiting results when you applied, don't forget to upload your transcript when you receive them, as we cannot confirm your place without these documents. You will be sent a notification by email once your place is confirmed.
If your start date is approaching
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to email us.
