We advise students to apply as early as possible before the start of their degree. Nearly all taught programmes start in September. Research degrees (PhD, MPhil) may begin on the first day of any month of the year, with a small number of exceptions.

Where a course has a specific deadline it is normally indicated on the individual course page.
