When to apply
We accept applications from October for students wanting to start the following September.
Application deadline: 30 April 2016.
Applications will be considered as they are submitted so we strongly reccommend you apply as early as possible, even if you haven’t finished your current programme of study. It’s very common to be offered a place conditional on you achieving a particular qualification.
If you’re applying for external funding from one of the Research Councils, make sure you submit your application by the deadline they’ve specified.
Late applications will only be considered if there are spaces available.
Please note that if you want to apply for a placement in a prison setting then we must receive your application by 30th April. Interviews for all shortlisted applicants will take place in May 2017.
Admission to many programmes is by interview, unless you live outside the UK. Occasionally, we’ll make candidates an offer of a place on the basis of their application and qualifications alone.
