Postgraduate applications go online

Published: 22 February 2002

Glasgow is one of the pilot universities in a new online applications service launched today.

The University of Glasgow is part of the CSU* pilot online application system, which has launched today, 22 February.

At present only the Universities of Glasgow and Durham have gone live. In due course CSU plan for all UK universities to participate in their online application system.

The University's online application website is at

Applicants will be required to register with CSU before submitting an application. Once registered, applicants will input core data about themselves (personal details; qualifications; employment details, etc.) which will then be called up whenever they wish to submit an online application. When an applicant enters the University's online application site, they will be asked to submit further details particular to their application to Glasgow. It is expected that this registration process will save applicants' time as they will not have to rekey the same core information for each application.

At present the online application system is restricted to those Postgraduate Taught programmes administered via SRAS**. Hardcopy evidence of applicants' documentation: transcript; references; EFL certificates, etc.will still be required before a formal offer will be made however it is expected that a swift online response will be appreciated particularly among International applicants.

*CSU are the publishers of the Prospects series and holders of the official UK database of Postgraduate study and research opportunities.
