Prospective Postgraduate Students

Postgraduate programmes in social and public policy are offered within the Graduate School of Social and Political Studies, which provides a vibrant, stimulating and multi-disciplinary environment for post-graduate study. How to apply. There are funding opportunities for excellent students embarking on a MSc + PhD or a PhD programme.

We strongly advise students to submit their applications before mid-June, especially where they require an unconditional offer of study in order to secure a student visa. Complete applications may be considered after this stage, but the School can not guarantee that such applications will receive a decision in time for the start of studies in September of the respective year. We would invite students applying after June to contact the programme director before applying. Please note however that all scholarship deadlines are earlier than this.
