Making An Application

Application Deadline: Friday 31 March 2017

Apply for a Postgraduate Programme

Email completed applications to postgradadmin@schumachercollege.org.uk

As the College believes in small group learning, places on each programme are limited to up to 17 students; we would therefore recommend making an early application. Your application will not be considered until we have received all of your supporting documentation. If you have any queries please e-mail: postgradadmin@schumachercollege.org.uk.

Before You Apply

  1. Choose your course by visiting the Postgraduate Programmes listing page.
  2. Consider whether you meet the entry requirements:
    International entry requirements
    English language requirements
  3. Check the specific admissions and entry requirements for the course you are interested in. Every course has a dedicated web page containing admission details and entry requirements, as well as other useful information in the full course information section.
  4. Check the Postgraduate Tuition Fees and Residential and Non-Residential Fees information pages.
  5. Contact the Postgraduate Team if you need any advice about a particular course.
  6. Consider the supporting documents you might need to send as part of your application.

After You Apply

Once we have received your application, the Postgraduate Admissions Team will contact you by email to confirm safe receipt of your application and to explain next procedures and discuss any supporting documentation still required.
