To register and apply for postgraduate courses, you will need to provide:

  • Your personal details including your qualifications.
  • A reference or contact details for a referee (someone, such as a lecturer or tutor, who can confirm your ability to do the course).
  • A personal statement – where you explain why you want to do this course – and the skills, life experiences and achievements that make you suitable.

Different postgraduate courses in the UK have different entry requirements, so check the individual course websites for instructions on how to apply.  

Many postgraduate courses do not have a fixed application deadline, so you can apply as soon as you decide that you want to study on a UK course. However, it is always best to apply early to make sure you have the best chance of being accepted.
