There will be no differential of deadlines for application between UK or EU or International graduate applicants.

More information

Before making an application to the University, research thoroughly your chosen course of study (via the University web site).

It is not currently known what the impact of the United Kingdom leaving the EU on 29 March 2019 will be on UK government policy on higher education fees, loans and bursaries. 

However, the UK government has confirmed that EU students starting courses in England in the academic year 2019-20 will continue to be eligible for Home fee status.  They will also be able to access financial support for the duration of their courses on the same basis as it is currently available.
