Step-by-step guide to postgraduate study

Follow this step-by-step guide for everything you need to know about applying for a postgraduate degree at the University of Hull.


Research your course options

Find your course:


Apply for your course

Apply online or see an agent in your country - they can help you with your application and submit it on your behalf.


Accept your offer

Provide any relevant documents to us to meet the conditions detailed in your offer, and pay your tuition fee deposit (if applicable - see your offer letter).

We will then send you your CAS via email at the earliest three months before your course start date. You will need your CAS for your visa application.

The CAS will include details of tuition fees already paid or scholarships, so be sure to check it is correct. It will also include details of supporting documents to include in your visa application.

The Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) is operated by the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office. It requires international students who intend to come to the UK to study on certain science and technology postgraduate and undergraduate masters degrees to get approval through the scheme as part of the UK national security processes. Your offer letter will state if you need an ATAS certificate.


Apply for a visa

Check whether you need a visa on the UK Government website.

We are here to help you with your application and supporting documents - see our step-by-step guide to applying for a visa and get in touch with our immigration team for support with your application.

Your agents in your country also support visa applications, even if you have not applied through them, and most often free of charge.


Apply for accommodation and pay tuition fees

A number of places are reserved for postgraduate students in our student houses, Taylor Court flats and The Courtyard.
