Postgraduate taught applicants

There is a £50 application fee for postgraduate taught courses and MRes courses beginning in August 2024 or later.

You must pay the application fee before we can process your application. Find out how to pay your student fees.


Track your application

You can log into our online application system, NottinghamHub, at any time to track the status of your application.

Check the status of your application regularly to see if we've requested anything else from you.

Track your application

If you've applied for teacher training or MA Social Work, you can track your application through UCAS.

If you already have your qualifications, you can upload scanned copies of your degree certificate and transcripts, as well as any other supporting documents. You may also need to provide two references, including at least one who can comment on your academic ability. 


Funding your course

It's a good idea to start exploring funding options once you've submitted your application. You'll need an offer of study before you can apply for some scholarships. But if you know what is available and what you are eligible for, you can plan your funding application and submit it as soon as you're ready. 

Information about scholarships and postgraduate student loans can be found in our funding guidance.
