Admissions & Applications
Entry Requirements - Home, European Union and International Applicants
Applicants to Masters (MSc) courses must have a 2.2 (Lower 2nd class honours degree or international equivalent) in a relevant degree, with the exception of our MSc Pure Mathematics and MSc in Financial and Computational Mathematics where a 2.1 (upper second class honours degree or international equivalent) is required.
Application Procedure - Home, European Union and International Applicants
Unlike the undergraduate application procedure in the UK, postgraduate course admissions are not centralised for all UK universities – each university has its own application form and process.
Our aim is to make the postgraduate application process as simple and efficient as possible, and with this in mind we have an online application procedure.
The online application is the quickest and easiest way of applying to The University of Nottingham and also allows you to follow the progress of your application for postgraduate study.
The online postgraduate application system:
Enables you to fill out a standard application form online
Submit your application to the university immediately
Ensures that your application is not delayed or lost in the post
Issues an automatic acknowledgement of receipt of your application

European Union and International Students
English Language Requirement
European and International students will be required to satisfy the School's minimum English language requirement .
The University of Nottingham has its own Centre for English Language Education (CELE) which provides study opportunities and support for International students who have been made an offer to study at the University.
Our masters (MSc) courses start in late September, and there is no second point of entry during the year for these courses.
Although most masters (MSc) courses do not have formal closing dates, you are advised to apply as early as possible and up to a year in advance of the start of your course.
A note to international students on closing dates
International students are particularly advised to submit applications as early as possible. An offer of a place is needed for many of the scholarships available to international students and closing dates can often be early in the year.
Furthermore, you will need to have an unconditional offer of a place on your course and be able to demonstrate that you have secured funding before you can apply for your student visa.
