Deadlines and Late Applications


We accept applications up to and including the deadlines via our online application system.
Complete applications submitted by the stipulated deadlines will normally be processed within eight weeks of the published processing start date.
If your application is referred back to you, e.g. because it is incomplete, it may take longer than eight weeks for us to process it. We normally process applications in the order they are received in and offers are made to successful applicants on a first-come, first-served basis.

An automated email to that effect will be sent to anyone submitted their application after the deadline.

For MA Screenwriting 

The decision as to whether or not late applications for the MA Screenwriting programme will be accepted and whether they will be accepted by all applicants or UK/EU/EEA applicants only, will be made after all applications have been processed and it has been determined how many offers will be made across the two offer rounds.
