Accessing Applicant Self-Service

  • Once you have submitted your Online Application, a Self Service button will appear on the ‘Application Homepage’ when you log into the Online Application System. The button should normally appear 1-3 working days after you have submitted an application. To access the Online Application System use the same link for “Apply Now” on the course you have applied for web page.

Please note, if the course you have applied for has now stopped accepting applications use the link on any Postgraduate Taught course page, this will take you to the log in screen for the Online Application System. An application for the course will appear on your Application Homepage below your submitted application, just do not submit this.
