To apply for a place on a postgraduate programme, you’ll need to fill in an online application form which can be found on each individual course page.

There’s no formal application deadline for most of our postgraduate courses, but some get very popular, so it’s best to apply as early as possible to avoid disappointment. If your application is accepted, we'll ask you to submit a creative portfolio of work. Check out our creative portfolio guide to know what we expect to see in those.

We interview all students because we genuinely want to find out more about you, and your motivation for your chosen subject. The important thing for us is your potential, and that you have what it takes to succeed and thrive on your course.
