When applying, it is important that applications are complete and provide all material that is requested (see below), because incomplete applications will not be considered. We therefore encourage applicants to apply early, so that any outstanding information can be supplied before the closing date.
Successful applicants will be asked to pay a deposit of £200.00, which will be treated as part-payment of the programme fee.
Only complete applications can be considered, so please make sure that your application includes the following:
- Documents not in English should be accompanied by a formally certified translation into English.
- If you are currently studying, you do not need to complete your previous course of study before you apply, as we can make you an offer conditional upon you successfully completing your current course.
If your employer or other sponsor is paying your programme fees, please include evidence of this, e.g. a letter on headed paper.
You do not need to provide a sample of written work or a research proposal.
If you have any questions about applying, you are welcome to contact the Programme Administrator.
Application guidance is available, so that you understand the various steps in the University's application process.
Applications can be submitted through the online application system (this is only available between the dates noted above).
We would encourage applicants to make an online application, but if you are unable to do this you can either:

Request that the application forms be sent to you by the Programme Administrator.
