Dates and deadlines

The UM academic year commences every October but you can apply online from the previous November for your preferred course. Another intake, on a smaller scale, is 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 at any time during the year. As part of the application process, applicants are required to submit a research proposal.
