Application Deadlines:

We are open for the 2017/18 student intake and accepting applications from October 1st 2016. We receive a large volume of applications for our courses and as a result we review applications and offer places on an ongoing rolling basis. Many of our courses fill in advance of September each year so our advice is to apply as early as possible for 2017/18.

The next deadline date to ensure you get your application in is May 15th 2017

How long does it take to receive a decision?:

The normal timescale for processing MSc and Master of Accounting applications is about 3 weeks, assuming that the application is complete with all supporting documents and you have paid the application fee.
