Dates and deadlines

The UM academic year commences every October but you can apply from the previous November onwards for your preferred course through the online application facility. Another intake on a smaller scale is also held in February.

The majority of Master's degrees by Research and all Doctoral Degrees (except for the Doctorate of Pharmacy degree) have more than one entry point. Prospective applicants can apply any time during the year. As part of the application process, applicants are required to submit a research proposal.
