If you are an applicant currently studying within the USA we can accept an application from you through the Common Application. However, if you are able to apply though UCAS we would encourage you to apply through this route. We strongly recommend that you apply by January 15 to ensure equal consideration with the rest of our applicants, however, we may consider applications after this date in some subject areas.
Please note you may only apply through the Common Application or UCAS, not both.
We are registered with ACT, therefore if you wish to provide your qualifications to us you can find our details on their website.
The University will consider students who hold an Honours degree from a recognised institution in the USA with a GPA of at least 3.0.
Please note that some subjects which are studied at postgraduate level in the USA, eg, Medicine and Law, are traditionally studied at undergraduate level in the UK.
