How to apply

Thinking about a Masters at Exeter? The Fast Track application process is available to current University of Exeter students in their final year of study.

Just four stages to apply!

1) Choose your area of interest
2) Choose your programme
3) Complete a Personal Statement
4) Submit your application

It is easy to apply for a Postgraduate Masters programme with us, as we already have your student record, previous academic qualifications, undergraduate grades to date, and current module information.

You should typically receive our decision within five working days from your completed application.

  • Fast Track for September 2024 entry is now open (Fast Track typically opens in the first week of October for the following September entry).
  • You can apply for as many Masters programmes as you are interested in.
  • There is no need to submit a reference, CV or copy of your Transcripts.
  • Most postgraduate taught and postgraduate research programmes can be applied for through Fast Track but where more information is required you will be directed to apply through the normal application system.
  • After you receive your final results, your Exeter student record will be automatically updated – you don’t need to let us know!
