Applicants for early funding competitions - such as the Gates Cambridge US round, for US citizens resident in the US - should apply by the relevant deadline for that funding source and will be assessed separately.

All other applications will be assessed as a gathered field after the advertised application deadline, with all offers being made by March 2022. Applicants should normally expect to hear whether they have been successful within 12 weeks of the course submission deadline.
