Undergraduate applicants - you should ensure that you keep your contact details up to date via the online Tracking system on the UCAS website.
As much of the correspondence sent to applicants is transmitted via email, it is vital that your email address is kept up to date at all times and that you regularly check your email account.
Most postgraduate courses do not have a published formal closing date, but you should be aware that popular courses close as they become full.
Please therefore ensure that you make your application for these courses as early as possible, particularly if you are intending to apply for funding, and preferably by 30 July (overseas/EU applicants) or 1 September (UK applicants) to avoid disappointment. Funded PhD Studentships do have formal application deadlines which are accessed via Departmental websites.
Detailed course information, including entry requirements, can be found on the Postgraduate Prospectus.
Should you require further information, you may find this on the relevant Departmental website.

The minimum entry requirements of each programme should give you an indication as to whether or not you should apply.
If you unable to attend a College Open Day, you are welcome to come and have a look round the grounds of the College during working hours.

Although we would recommend attending one of the main College Open Days, if you are unable to do so, you may wish to try and arrange an individual visit. Most Departments can arrange this if given advance notice. This type of visit cannot be guaranteed and may not be possible at all times of the year, or at short notice, as it will depend upon the availability of staff within the Department concerned.
