1. Choose a course
Browse our postgraduate courses to ensure you are comfortable with the course content and entry requirements.
Once you have found the course you are interested in you can use the ‘Contact’ information on the right to find out more or visit the Department website.
You will need to provide the following documents in support of your application:
- Course or research programme choices
- Personal Information
- Academic qualifications and transcripts
- Personal Statement/Research Proposal
- Two completed references (one must be academic) OR names and contact details of two people from whom we can request references (one must be an academic referee).
- Photograph (optional)
- Proof of English language competency (if your first language is not English)
The more documentation that you are able to provide, the quicker the decision making process will be. If applying online, you can upload electronic versions of your supporting documentation.
3. Apply directly to the University
You can apply online for all distance learning and most campus-based courses using the ‘Apply Online’ box or link on the right of each individual course page.
If there is no ‘Apply Online’ box or link and no alternative instruction please email email@example.com
For campus-based courses you also have the option of completing a paper application.
Please note: applications for Doctor of Clinical Psychology (DClinPsy) should be made to the Clearing House for Postgraduate Courses in Clinical Psychology.
