Masters in Finance August 2018 intake - Application Rounds


The dates below are a guide to the maximum decision times in each admissions round. We review applications, and release decisions, throughout each round.

The application round is determined by when your application is complete, not when it is initially submitted. If your application is incomplete at a round deadline, it will be considered in a later round. For example, we must receive your references and transcripts by the round deadline for you to be considered in that round.


When to apply?


We apply the same selection criteria in each round, but competition is often more intense in the final two rounds.

If you require a visa to study in the UK we encourage you to apply in Rounds 1 - 4. Please also note that preference for scholarship awards will be given to candidates who apply in rounds 1 - 4 (full-time MiF) and rounds 1 - 5 (part-time MiF).

Allow yourself sufficient time to prepare your application thoroughly, especially to consider carefully your answers to the essay questions.
