Specific instructions on how to apply to the courses below can be found by clicking on the link:
Our step by step guide below explains what will happen to your application after you have submitted it.
1. You send your completed application to us. The application is received and then registered onto our application system. If you have not included all the documents we have asked for we will contact you and request them so that we can fully assess your application.
2. Your academic qualifications and English language level (if appropriate) are assessed by our International Office and Admissions team who will establish whether your international qualifications are equivalent to the UK levels we ask for in our brochures and on our website. If necessary your application will then be assessed by the programme leader for the course you have applied for.
3. Once we are satisfied that you have met the Universities entry requirements you can then be either issued with a Conditional/Unconditional offer, asked for more information, invited to join another programme (perhaps at a different level) or we may advise you that we cannot make you an offer of a place at the University. A small number of programmes require us to link you to an academic who will ask you to demonstrate that the programme is suitable for you. In most instances this can be done via skype and you will be contacted if this is the case.
4. We will then let you know the result of your application. Usually we will do this by both a letter in the post and also via email, with instructions on the next stage of the application process.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL – formerly known as AP(E)L)
Applicants who wish to apply for advanced standing (exemption from part of a programme) based on previous study and/or experiential learning may apply for RPL. Please note that any credits or marks gained from previous study shall not be counted in your final result as your award is calculated solely on the credits and marks accumulated while registered at the University of Winchester.
An application for RPL to exempt the postgraduate research student from part of the research skills programme, or from a module of the pre-thesis stage of a professional doctorate programme should normally be submitted at the application stage. Please note it can not be used in relation to the thesis for Professional Doctorate, MPhil or PhD qualifications. Please refer to the RPL Policy
