Postgraduate application guide

As a prospective postgraduate student in the UK, you’re about to embark on an exciting journey. This guide is tailored to provide you with all the information, tips and advice to navigate the application process seamlessly.


How to apply


For full-time, part-time and distance learning postgraduate courses, you must submit your application directly through our online applicant portal. You can also upload your supporting documents, portfolio or show-reel and make subsequent applications. Take a look at the step-by-step guide to support you through the postgraduate application process and help you complete your application.



Our top 6 application tips 


1.Check the entry requirements: Each course has its own requirements, so check your course-specific requirements before applying to ensure you meet them. 


2. Include all relevant documentation before submitting your application: You must provide copies of all your academic documentation, including transcripts and certificates. If you don’t include this as part of your application, it will delay us being able to get back to you with an offer.  


3. Inform your references: Quality references can significantly boost your application. Choose referees who know your academic or professional abilities well and let them know the university will contact them.  


4. Writing a winning personal statement: Your personal statement is your chance to shine! Highlight your academic achievements, career goals, and what makes you a perfect postgraduate fit for Middlesex University. Again, please complete your personal statement before submitting your application, as we cannot offer you without this information. Need some guidance? Visit our personal statement advice page for tips and examples. 


5. Ask for help: Our friendly admissions team is here to help. Contact us using the pop-up box below or you can Live Chatfill in our enquiry form or call +44 (0)20 8411 5555 for friendly advice. 


6. Apply early: Early applications have an advantage as the course will close when full, preventing you from missing out on your course of choice. It also helps when seeking scholarships and funding.
