How do I apply for a postgraduate course in the UK?

Foreign Students's picture

For most postgraduate programmes, you should apply directly to the institution. Most institutions don't have exact closing dates for postgraduate applications, but you should try and apply as early as possible. Most courses fill up quickly and the earlier you apply the more likely you are to get a place.

After you have sent your application form, some institutions will require you to go for an interview, whilst some will base their offer solely on your application. If getting to an interview in the UK is a problem for you, most universities offer the option of a telephone interview or one in your home country.

Some universities allow you to apply to postgraduate courses through UKPASS, a common application system.
