Edinburgh Business School applicants
You can apply for Edinburgh Business School programmes through the Edinburgh Business School website.
In order for us to assess your suitability for the programme you have applied for, you need to submit various supporting documents. You can view the documents you are required to submit and upload them by logging into your application account.
You may delay an offer being made to you if you do not submit your supporting documents as soon as you can.
When to apply
There is no official deadline for postgraduate applications (except for the School of Energy, Geoscience, Infrastructure and Society’s distance learning programmes); we accept them right up until the beginning of term. However, if you are applying for a popular programme, it is in your best interest to submit your application as soon as you can so that you have the best chance of getting a place.
You should also bear in mind that in order to secure accommodation on campus you must have received and accepted your offer and submitted your accommodation requirements by the deadline (usually mid-August).
How we process your application
All applications will be carefully considered by appropriate staff in the relevant school and you will receive a response as soon as possible. For some programmes, where the volume of applications is very high, this may be several weeks but for most programmes, you should hear from us within 2 weeks.
The response that you receive from the School will be either:
- an unconditional offer
- a conditional offer (further supporting documentation will be required, such as a copy of your degree certificate if you had not completed your degree when you first submitted your application)
- regretfully, a decision to reject your application
Responding to an offer
You will be able to view our decision by logging into your application account. If you receive an offer, please respond to it as soon as possible.
