News and events

We aim to keep you up to date throughout the application process, and to provide you with information regarding events that may have an effect on the progress of your application.

Current headlines


  • RESOLVED: The technical issue with the tracker has been solved.
  • Results documents and CAS issuing: We are in the midst of peak season for processing results documents. At this time of year we receive hundreds of documents every day which need to be processed and checked and, where applicable, used to progress the issuing of your CAS. We are working as hard as we can to work our way through the current backlog. Please be patient; follow up emails and calls slow down processing. We will contact you as soon as we can.

Application system

For details on which programmes are currently recruiting, please check our Available Programmes page.

The application form will close for annual maintenance on Monday 23 September. If you intend to apply for an Executive programme starting in December 2019 you must have completed and submitted your application and all supporting documents before then. If you are unable to apply before this date, you should wait until the application reopens.

The new admissions cycle will begin on Monday 7 October.


Our normal phone service opening hours are 9am - 5pm UK time, Monday to Friday. Our phone service is closed between 10am-11am each Monday morning for team meetings.

Please only call if your documents were received before our current processing date and you have not had notification from us. We cannot confirm receipt of documents until they are processed - see  our current processing times.  We thank you for your patience.

To call us please call +44 (0)20 7955 7160. We use an automated system to direct your call to the most appropriate person. For further details on the options available, see our Contact Graduate Admissions page.

  • From Monday 22 to Friday 26 July our phone service will be open 11am - 3pm. This is due to a large number of institutions sending confirmation documents to us, therefore we are reducing our phone service so that we can prioritise processing these.
