How to apply

To apply, please see  www.manchester.ac.uk/pgapplication  If you have any questions or need any advice, please contact us.

As there is high demand for this course we operate a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year. Due to the competition for places, we give preference to students with grades above our minimum entry requirements. If we make you an offer, you will have 6 weeks in which to accept. Any offers not accepted within 6 weeks will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate. 

Stage 1: Application received by 15.10.19; decision by 1.12.19

Stage 2: Application received by 15.12.19; decision by 1.2.20

Stage 3: Application received by 15.2.20; decision by 1.4.20

Stage 4: Application received by 15.4.20; decision by 1.6.20

You need to ensure that you submit your supporting documents with your application as it may delay us processing your application before the decision deadline.

Whilst we aim to give you a decision on your application by the deadline date, in some instances due to the competition for places and the volume of applications received, it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next deadline date. If this is the case we will let you know after the deadline date.

Applications received after our final selection deadline will be considered at our discretion if places are still available.

Please note: All places are subject to availability and if you apply at one of the later stages, some courses may already be closed. We therefore recommend that you apply early in the cycle to secure your place with us.

If you have not yet completed your undergraduate studies, please submit your latest transcripts with your online application, together with the other supporting documents, including a list of your final year units and your current average expressed as a percentage, verified by your current institution. We will not be able to assess your application without this information.

Applicants who are made a conditional offer of a place must demonstrate that they have met all the conditions of their offer by 31st July 2020.
