Thank you for considering Aston University for your postgraduate studies. Due to very high demand for places, Aston University now operates a staged admissions process for all on campus taught Masters programmes. 

To ensure that we can fully support you with your application (including your visa application, should you require one), please note the following deadlines for applying to all on campus taught Masters programmes: 

September 2023 intake

  • Applications for our September 2023 intake of postgraduate courses are now open.

This webpage will be updated regularly to confirm when programmes are closed. If you are unable to submit your application by the deadline and your chosen course is closed, we regret that we will not be able to provide you with an offer and we will advise you of alternative programmes.  

Application form

You’ll find an application form on every postgraduate course page (there is a blue 'Apply Now' button towards the top right of each page). Once your application has been received, you’ll receive a confirmation email followed by an electronic copy of your completed form. 

When submitting your application please ensure that a full application is submitted including all relevant supporting documents: 

Essential supporting documents
  • Copies of your university transcripts, for each year of study
  • If you haven’t completed your degree yet, please submit the grades that you have achieved so far. If necessary, certified English translations of all documents should be provided. 
  • Copies of your English language qualifications (if necessary – please check our English Language Requirements as this may not be required)
  • Two references (one academic and one employer provided on a letter headed paper and signed; alternatively the reference can be provided directly from the referee via their professional email address)
  • A personal statement (250 words maximum)

Your statement should explain your interest in your chosen subject area, highlight non-academic achievements or activities that you wish to be considered, and demonstrate how the course will support your career plans.
