Application Deadlines

In the case of candidates seeking funding through one of the scholarship programmes, it is important that we should receive applications for admission at least one month before the relevant deadline.

Students on taught graduate programmes are admitted to start their studies at the beginning of an academic year. Students applying directly for admission as a doctoral candidate can be admitted at any time, though preferably at the start of an academic year.

Applications can be submitted for consideration at any time. It should be noted, however, that in the case of admission to research programmes candidates cannot be accepted until an appropriate supervisor has been identified and this may on occasion take several weeks.
