Applying to graduate degrees

Learn more about the support you will receive in applying to your Master's degree, including one-to-one support from a dedicated education adviser.

Expert university support

Choosing the right postgraduate programme is an important decision.

On the IPM, you will receive guidance and support to help you make that decision, including:

  • Guidance on choosing postgraduate degree programmes
  • Support with your personal statement
  • Help with references
  • Reviewing and confirming your offers
  • Individual support

A dedicated education advisor, along with your personal tutors and course leaders, are there to help at all the stages of the application process.

Personal statement support

In the first term, you will attend classes and question and answer sessions on how to write an effective personal statement.

This gives you the opportunity to work on your personal statement before you need to submit your applications.

We advise students to submit their postgraduate applications early in the new year because these courses are usually competitive.

Individual support

In addition to the all-IPM sessions, you will receive ongoing individual support with key aspects of the postgraduate application process.

You will also have access to a University Applications IPM Moodle module, which includes a range of resources to support students with their applications.
