Postgraduate Admissions process most full- and part-time applications for both postgraduate taught (e.g. Masters) and research (e.g. PhD) study at Sussex.
In the Postgraduate Prospectus we give details of all taught degrees and research programmes and this will help you decide whether Sussex is right for you. If you wish to receive a printed copy of the prospectus you can order a prospectus online.
Applications should be submitted using our online postgraduate application system. This is quick and easy to use, and after you have submitted your application you will be able to track its progress and you will be notified by email when a decision is made. If you are successful, you will be able to view your offer letter and accept your place online. For those eligible for housing, you can also then complete the housing application using the same system.
Almost all applications for postgraduate study are submitted via the online system direct to the University. The main exceptions are:
- MA in Social Work - applications are made via UCAS
- MSc in Automotive Engineering - applications are made via the University of Brighton
