Application deadlines

When should I apply?

Our undergraduate and postgraduate course pages will show the intakes that are available and open to applications. It's best to apply early so you can secure your place and beat the rush.

Once we have received your application and supporting documents (such as qualifications or references), we will review it and contact you within 4 weeks to let you know if you have been successful or not.

Our aim is to support all students to have the best possible opportunities to succeed and so our application and enrolment deadlines are in place to ensure you stand the best chance of doing so.

Joining the programme later may harm your chances of success on your course. It is therefore vital that you take note of the dates and ensure you submit your completed application and subsequent enrolment in time.

Undergraduate and postgraduate taught deadlines

Please note some courses may have an earlier induction, teaching and enrolment deadline date. These are indicated in the table below.

If your course operates a gathered field or pooled admissions process there may be an earlier application date. Please check your individual course page for further details.

Applications for September 2023 are now open. On-campus courses staring in January 2023 are closed to new applications from international students due to unprecedented demand. Please take a look at our useful information for international applicants. If you have any questions, please email askadmissions@derby.ac.uk.
