How to apply

Advice to applicants

The personal statement in the application form should demonstrates your understanding of the subject and your motivation for wanting to study the programme.

We also require an academic-standard essay (in English) no more than 4,000 words long on subject related to Gender, Sexuality and Culture.

Please upload the writing sample under the 'CV/Resume' option in the Supporting Documents section of the application form.

How your application is considered

Applications are mainly considered on the basis of an assessment of past and predicted academic achievements and the required supplementary evidence that supports the application. Once we have an application that is ready for a decision, the admissions tutor (often the Programme Director) will relay the decision to the admissions team, who will send you this decision.

Please note that your application is usually received by the School 24 to 48 hours after the time you submit it. If you have not provided documentation that allows the admissions tutor to make a decision, we will contact you.

Overseas (non-UK) applicants

The University will take into account the academic standing of a candidate's University, as advised by our international office using published world and country rankings.


If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.
