When to apply

Imperial College Business School operates a number of application deadlines throughout the year. For more information please see their website.

Most other postgraduate courses do not have a published formal closing date, but you should be aware that popular courses close as they become full. Please therefore ensure that you make your application for these courses as early as possible, particularly if you are intending to apply for funding, and preferably by 30 July (overseas/EU applicants) or 1 September (UK applicants) to avoid disappointment.

If you are planning to apply for College funding, you need to be aware of the various closing dates for College awards. For Funded PhD studentships, formal application deadlines can also be accessed via the Departmental websites. Research student funding opportunities are advertised on the Graduate School websites.
