BU offers a wide variety of Master’s degree subjects, and what’s more, if you join us in January 2024, you could be eligible for our Academic Achievement Scholarship (a £2,000 reduction in fees) for Home applicants or our Academic Excellence Scholarship (a £3,500 reduction in fees) for Overseas applicants.

Students in England may also be eligible for up to £12,167 of funding support from a postgraduate loan in January 2024. And, if you need to explore your accommodation options, check out what’s on offer on our accommodation web pages.

For January 2024 entry, the application deadline is 1 December 2023 for international students and 8 January 2024 for Home students. The application deadline for PG Cert Intellectual Property is 18 December.

December and January is one of our busiest application periods so, to avoid disappointment, we recommend submitting your application for a January start as soon as possible.

Applications from international students

For January 2024 entry, our International Admissions Team will issue Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) statements up until 20 December 2023. We are unable to release a CAS until the deposit of £3,000 is fully received and confirmed by our Finance Department, which can take up to 10 working days. We recommend the use of Flywire for any payments in December, as they come to the university quicker than bank transfers. Please refer to your offer letter for the deposit payment deadline. All outstanding actions within myHub must also be completed in advance of 20 December for the CAS to be issued.
