Terms and Conditions

The application fee is non-refundable so it is important that you check any specific entry requirements for the programme you are applying to: see Taught degree programmes A‑Z.

If you are applying with qualifications from outside the UK then you should check the postgraduate taught entry requirements for your country: see International students: In your country

Applicants who are sponsored may have the application fee waived at the point of applying online. However if the sponsorship status changes before the student registers with the University and the student is self-funded the University reserves the right to invoice the student for the initial application fee.
