How to apply

You can apply for Masters courses in Informatics at any time, for entry at the start of the next academic year in September. However, early application (preferably by May) is advised, particularly if you will need a visa to come and study in the UK. To apply for a scholarship from Sussex, you must first submit an application for a place on a course.

You can use a convenient online system to apply for postgraduate study in Informatics at Sussex. General information on the applications and selection process, and what it's like to study at Sussex is available in the postgraduate prospectus.

If you are interested in applying for a doctoral degree, please see our Doctoral degrees pages.
