Please ensure that you meet the entry criteria for your programme of interest and have read our application process page.

If you are a current Exeter undergraduate applying for a taught postgraduate programme, you can apply using our Fast Track system. As we already hold information on your academic performance you don’t have to provide academic references or transcripts of your marks to date. Instead you complete a shorter application form, including a personal statement. You will normally receive a decision from us within five working days.

If you are a postgraduate taught or postgraduate research applicant and you are unable to apply online, you can complete a paper application form (pdf). You will also need to complete an equal opportunities monitoring form (pdf) and enclose a cover sheet with your supporting documents.

It is possible to change programmes. If the programme you wish to change to is within the same College you will need to provide a new personal statement clearly outlining your reasons. If the programme is not within the same College you will be required to reapply, via the normal route.

You must check with the College if they will allow you to change. If they are happy with this they will contact the Admissions Office, and a new offer letter will be sent to you. Please be aware that if you are an International student, due to visa regulations, you will not be permitted to study part-time.

It is possible to apply for more than one programme, however, we would ask you to consider your choices carefully and ensure your personal statement is relevant to your choice(s). You can hold more than one offer, but you can only accept one.
