All applications for graduate study are processed on the University's Student Management System. See Applying for graduate study for full details. 

You are advised to refer to the application guide before making an application. An application fee of £75 is required prior to uploading your complete application. An application fee waiver will automatically be applied to applicants who reside in a World Bank low-income country.

What happens after I apply?

The MSc in Global Health Science and Epidemiology is an extremely popular course and is usually over-subscribed. Applications submitted after the December deadline cannot be guaranteed a place on the course.

All applications are carefully considered by an admissions panel comprised of at least two members of the academic team. Admissions decisions are notified to applicants in writing. Regrettably, it is not possible for the administrative team to discuss individual application decisions by phone.

The University provides an outline of the process for the admissions decisions for your information.
