Applying to Warwick
If you’re thinking about applying for a postgraduate course at Warwick, here’s how our application process works.
1. Choose your course
Take a look at our online prospectus, come along to an Open Day or contact an academic department directly. You can apply for as many postgrad courses as you want, but if more than one application is successful you can only accept a place on one full-time course. (If you’re applying for a WMG taught course, you should only make one application.)
2. Check the entry requirements
Do you meet the requirements for the course you’ve chosen? These can include academic requirements such as qualifications or experience, as well as things like English language skills. If you’re applying for a research degree, you should also look at our application checklist.
3. Complete an online application form
You can apply for most postgraduate courses online via Warwick's Postgraduate Application form. There’s a different application process for the Warwick MBA. PGCE applications have to go through UCAS Teacher Training, apart from International PGCE applications, which should be made via
the Postgraduate Application form. And if you want to study for an MA in Social Work or MBChB you should apply through UCAS.
If you're applying for a taught course (MA, MSc) the fee is currently set at £35 for an online application and £60 for a paper application. Please be aware that from the 1st January 2015 this fee will increase to £50 for an online application and £75 for a paper application. There's no fee when you apply for a research degree.
The application assessment fee is non-refundable. As soon as you’ve submitted your application form and paid the fee, we’ll start to review your application.
5. Notify your referees and follow the instructions we send you
We’ll contact you by email – and we may include a link to upload some more supporting documents. If you have any questions at this stage, don't hesitate to contact us.
6. Give us time to assess your application
Decisions about student admissions are made by our Course Selectors.

If you’re a UK or EU resident, there are no application deadlines for postgraduate taught courses. But places are limited, so you should submit your application as early as possible.
If you’re from outside the EU, you may need to get a student visa. To make sure you have time to do this, the application deadline is 31 July for courses that start in September.
Some departments have earlier deadlines – so you should check the information in the Application Fact File for each course.
