Postgraduate Staged Admissions Process
Information on the staged admissions process for postgraduate courses at Aston University.
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.
Application deadlines have been introduced and our most popular programmes will close as soon as all places are filled. Certain programmes have already closed, please see the closed programmes section at the bottom of the page for more information.
This webpage will be updated regularly to confirm when programmes are closed. If you fail 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.
When submitting your application please ensure that a full application is submitted including all relevant supporting documents:
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.
You’ll find an application form on every postgraduate course page. Once your application has been received, you’ll receive a confirmation email followed by an electronic copy of your completed form.
Deadlines for applications to programmes starting in September 2022 are shown in the table below:
