How to apply
Follow this simple guide for postgraduate how to apply advice for all taught and research degrees
Home, EU and International students should apply for our full-time and part-time postgraduate taught courses in the UK using the online system provided by the UK Postgraduate Application and Statistical Service (UKPASS). You can apply for up to 10 courses – create your application in your own time and complete unfinished sections when you're ready. Use their Track service to follow your applications as they progress through the system and receive any offer replies online. Apply through UKPASS.
International postgraduate students
If you are an overseas student (non-EU) you may complete the LSBU Direct Application Form (DOC File 316 KB) and send it via email, along with scanned copies of your supporting documents to: email@example.com. It is important to ensure that scanned copies of the following documents are included with the application:
- academic certificates and transcripts
- English Language qualifications (if applicable)
- passport (photo and ID page)
- copies of all UK visas (if applicable)
If you have any further questions regarding the application process or questions regarding courses please contact our International Enquiries Manager via email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +44 (0)20 7815 6189.
Exceptions to applying via UKPASS
Some professional qualifications have specific application forms you will need to complete rather than going through UKPASS. As these courses qualify students to practice in the UK, applicants from outside the EU who require a permit to work in the UK would not normally be considered to apply. Contact our Course Enquiries team on (free phone) 0800 923 8888 for further details.
