IMPORTANT: If you are applying for the MEd and have done a PGCE with the Faculty please do not follow the application procedure below.  Please instead go to the progression from PGCE to MEd page and use the Apply section.

Applying for postgraduate courses

The Postgraduate Admissions website provides a wealth of information for applicants including how to apply, what to expect from studying at the University, the Colleges and funding opportunities. There is also a course directory which has information on each of the courses on offer including details on the course structure, assessment criteria, fees and deadlines for submitting an application.

There is also a detailed process map of how the application process works and an extremely useful FAQs page if you have questions about the application process.

The Faculty webpages provide additional further information about the Faculty of Education and the courses that we offer.

If you have questions about what it’s like to study here as an international student, chat to our student ambassadors via Unibuddy – a platform for prospective students to have a one-on-one chat with our current students. It is a great way to gain valuable insights into student life and build professional and social connections with fellow peers.

calendar datesWhen to Apply

Please check the Postgraduate Course Directory to find out the deadlines for the course for which you are applying.

Please note that there are two deadlines you need to check:

  • the course deadline
  • funding deadline

You must apply by whichever comes first (see guidance).

The Faculty makes conditional offers throughout the year so it is best to apply as early as possible. Applications are considered in batches and if a decision cannot be made in relation to your application, we reserve the right to carry forward your application to be considered in later batches.

Feedback on your Application and Complaints Procedure

The Faculty cannot give reasons for not offering admission, nor advise you how to improve your application. However, if you believe that there has been an administrative error, or if you believe you have been treated unfairly because of bias or prejudice, or if there are circumstances unknown to the University that might have affected the decision, you should refer to the University Complaints ProcedurePlease note, however, that there is no appeal against academic judgements made by the University.

Data Protection

The University and the Colleges will use the details you provide on your application, together with the supporting documents requested and additional details provided by any referees and recorded following any interview process.
