How your Application is Processed

The Postgraduate Admissions team will pass your application to the appropriate academic department(s) for consideration. You can expect a decision usually within 2 weeks for Taught Masters courses and 6 weeks for PhD or Research programmes. After this time you will receive a letter stating whether:

  • You have been successful and are to be offered a place
  • You have been invited for an interview
  • We are unable to offer you a place

Your offer letter outlines:

  • The conditions you need to meet before you can register
  • The cost of your course
  • The start date for your course

When you have fulfilled the conditions of your offer you will receive:

  • A letter firmly accepting you to Aberystwyth University
  • Information about how to pay tuition fees, how to register
  • Instructions on how to apply for University accommodation
  • Travel and arrival information, and an induction schedule for new postgraduates
