How to apply page image

UWTSD has a diverse postgraduate community. We welcome applications from all walks of life, whether you have recently graduated or have been away from education for some time.

Applications for all Taught Postgraduate and Postgraduate Research courses (Excluding PGCE Teacher Training) can be made by clicking on the link below:


In addition to the personal and academic details required on the application form, you will be asked to name two referees. Ideally your referees should be able to provide an academic reference but professional or personal (not family) references are acceptable for applicants who have not recently been in education, if you are unsure about obtaining a reference please contact the admissions tutor who will be able to provide guidance. 

For further advice and guidance on how to apply, please contact our Admissions Team at

Advice for International students and students from the European Union can also be found in the International section of this site.

Alternatively, if you are unable to complete the online application form you can submit an application by completing the relevant form below and returning it to our Registry Department.
