Master's application process
On this page
Applications for MA/MSc, MRes, MFA, MDes and MEd programmes starting in September 2023 are now open.
Once you have reviewed the programme requirements and application process, visit our online application portal to make your application.
This will be then reviewed by our academic staff and you will receive either an invitation to interview or notification of the outcome of your application.
In a small number of instances, it may not be possible to make a decision based on an application alone. In these cases, you will be invited to attend an interview either in person or online. Receiving a request for interview does not make you any more or less likely to receive an offer of a place. Your invitation email will contain full details of the interview and anything you might need to prepare. Please ensure you are available for your interview before submitting your application.
Once your application has been reviewed and interview completed (if applicable), you will receive one of the following application outcomes:
- a formal offer of a place
- a place on the waiting list, if the programme is already full
- an offer of a place on our Graduate Diploma Art & Design pre-master's Programme, which we have designed especially to help transition students to full MA programmes (with January, April and September intakes)
- an unsuccessful notification
If you do receive an offer, we encourage all successful applicants to secure their place by returning their acceptance and deposit as soon as possible.
