Postgraduate Study
Students interested in postgraduate taught course study should possess a degree-level qualfication (preferably 2:1, although some departments will accept a 2:2) from a recognised university and should apply directly to Strathclyde via the website.  We do not have a deadline for postgraduate applications, but applicants are advised to apply as early as possible to have the best chance of getting a place. 

Research applicants are advised to contact the department directly before submitting a formal application.
