Applying for a Postgraduate course

University of the Arts London is home to Europe’s largest postgraduate arts and design community, and each College has its own thriving postgraduate environment.

How to apply to a postgraduate taught programme

Our Colleges offer an unrivalled range of postgraduate programmes, including two types of taught programme:

  • Masters degrees (MA, MFA, MDes, MSc, MBA): A Masters programme is normally one year in length. You usually need an undergraduate degree to apply to a Master's degree. The typical structure is two semesters of taught courses followed by a dissertation (a research project or thesis).
  • Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas (PGCert and PGDip): These programmes may share the syllabus of a Masters degree, but do not include the dissertation component.

The application process will vary depending on the programme. Please check the relevant course page for full details.

If you're an International student, you will find application advice and contact details on our Application Advice for International Students page.
