How to apply for a taught postgraduate course

Applying for a postgraduate taught degree is easy – whether you're new to ARU, or a current undergraduate student who wants to apply for a Masters.

Applying for a course at ARU

You can apply for our taught postgraduate degree courses online. There's an application link on each full-time and part-time course page.

It can take up to four weeks to consider applications, so we recommend you apply at least a month before your preferred start date.

For most postgraduate courses you’ll need a qualification or experience equivalent to a UK honours degree, usually in a relevant subject area. Courses do vary, however, so please check the relevant course page for detailed requirements. When assessing your application, we’ll consider:

  • whether your qualifications meet our entry requirements
  • your subject-specific abilities
  • your broader personal, professional and educational experience.
