How to choose a postgraduate course

After getting started with what type of course to study, you might still find a lot of relevant courses to choose from around the country. Make sure you check the entry requirements when you search for courses, and take a look at our tips for choosing between courses and visiting universities to find out more.

Search for postgraduate courses

Before you can apply for a course through UCAS Postgraduate, you'll need to register with UCAS Postgraduate. Once you've registered, you can save searches and shortlist courses.

You can then use the same service to apply for some (but not all) postgraduate courses. You will need to use other UCAS schemes to apply for other postgraduate courses. See below for further details.


... but please note there are separate searches for some specific disciplines:

  • UCAS Postgraduate provides an application service for a number of UK course providers.
  • Other providers who are not in the UCAS Postgraduate scheme have different application routes.
