When should I apply/What are the deadlines?

Aberystwyth University can accept applications for postgraduate study throughout the year, providing that applicants meet the published entry requirements for their chosen scheme, and that there are still places available. 

Applicants for research programmes should look to make their applications as early as possible, and most applicants will make their applications in the period between November and January.   

Applications for postgraduate taught study from International applicants should be received a minimum of three months before the course commences, in order that there is sufficient time to complete the necessary admissions and visa processes .

If you intend to apply for a particular source of funding or scholarship, remember that deadlines will apply. You need to pay particular attention to these deadlines, as in most cases, you need to be holding an offer before you can apply for funding. Please see our Calculator for possible funding opportunities.

Distance Learning applications should be made a minimum of two months prior to the course start
