After you've applied
Now that you have made your application, we're sure that you're eager to know what happens next.
What happens next?
You’ll receive an acknowledgement email and we’ll start to process your application. We’ll aim to make a decision about your application and communicate this to you as soon as possible but please note that during peak times it can take up to four weeks to process applications.
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 should then log back into the application portal and accept your offer, which conditionally secures your place.
Don't forget to provide your results
If your offer is conditional, you will need to upload evidence that you have met the conditions (eg degree results and evidence of your English language proficiency) to the application portal before your place at the University can be confirmed.
Results lower than expected?
If you are concerned that you will not be accepted because your results are lower than expected, please upload your transcripts and contact us for advice. In some cases we may be able to suggest a similar or related programme.
Paying your tuition fees
You do not need to pay your fees in advance and you will not be billed until shortly after you have started your postgraduate course. For more information on tuition fees and methods of payments please check out the Student Finance Office.
If you are receiving sponsorship for your tuition fees, you will need to provide an official letter from your sponsor to confirm this. Until we receive the official confirmation of sponsorship we will consider you to be self-funding.
If you are an international student, you may be required to pay a deposit before your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) is issued to you. Details of how to do this can be found in our guidance for international students.
