How to apply
Follow this simple guide for postgraduate how to apply advice for all taught and research degrees
Book now on to our How to Apply Evenings in December and January for guidance on the application process and information on fees and funding.
Home and EU 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) via UCAS Postgraduate. 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.
If you need further information or would like help with your application you should call our Course Enquiries team (freephone) on 0800 923 88 88.
International postgraduate students
If you are an overseas student (non-EU) you can complete the LSBU Online Application Form on the International How to apply page.
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.
If your course is not listed on the LSBU Online Application Form you can submit an application via UKPASS.
Exceptions to applying via UKPASS and the LSBU Online Application Form
Some professional qualifications have specific application forms you will need to complete rather than going through UKPASS or the LSBU Online Application Form. 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.
MSc/PgDip Social Work
Applications are made through the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS). Students from EU countries can apply for assistance with Tuition Fees but will not be eligible for a bursary. Students from outside the EU will not receive any assistance with funding or a bursary.
Courses in our School of Health and Social Care
PgDip Legal Studies
Applications for full-time study on this course should be made through the Central Applications Board.
Postgraduate Certificate in Education (PGCE)
Applications for full-time and part-time PGCE courses are made through the UCAS Teacher Training scheme. Students from other EU countries are able to receive the same assistance with Tuition Fees as Home students – see the Teacher Training Agency for more information. Students from outside the EU will not receive any assistance with funding or a bursary.

Continuing Professional and Personal Development (CPPD)
Search our online CPPD prospectus for your programme, module or study day and follow the online application instructions that come with guidance notes. If you are being sponsored by your NHS Trust, you must discuss your application with your line manager before applying, as your manager will authorise it online through your application.
All applicants must also return a completed Equal Opportunities form (DOC File 326 KB) with your application. If the course you're applying for needs one or more references complete a downloaded Reference Request for Study Form 12/13 (DOC File 342 KB) and our Information for Referees (DOC File 330 KB).
ONCAMPUS London South Bank programmes
Please contact our partner institution ONCAMPUS for International Undergraduate Foundation Programme, International Year One, English Language Preparation Programme and International - Master's Foundation programme.
Additional information from some applicants
Our Additional Information Form must be completed if the course you are applying for requires:
- details of professional qualifications gained
- details of qualifications you may be studying for currently
- an extended personal statement of 1,000 words rather than 200 words
The form should be returned together with the appropriate application form. Download our Additional Information Form 12/13 (DOC File 423 KB).
Disability and dyslexia support
You should disclose a disability, dyslexia, medical or mental health condition on your application form and will then receive a questionnaire from our Disability and Dyslexia Support (DDS) team. They want to know how your disability affects your ability to study and what reasonable adjustments, such as extra time or enlarged text, you need to support your studies.
If you did not disclose a disability at the time of applying and want to do so now, contact Disability and Dyslexia Support on 020 7815 6405.
For applicants with disabilities, additional government funding is available through the Disabled Students' Allowance (DSA).
Loans for postgraduate study
If you are starting a postgraduate course, studying for a Masters-level qualification either full- or part-time, you may be entitled to apply for a £10,000 postgraduate study loan.
You can check whether your particular course qualifies at our postgraduate fees and funding section.
You can also check your personal eligibility at Gov.uk.
