Evidence of English language skills
Do you need a Tier 4 student visa to study or your first
language is not English? You must provide us with an acceptable
evidence of your English language skills. Please refer to further
guidance on our
English language requirements webpage.
If you have been asked for references, they must be on a
University of Hull reference form or company letter-headed
paper with an official stamp. References from family or friends are
not accepted. Most of our courses require one recent academic
reference. Applications for MBA also need to include recent
employment reference. Current University of Hull graduates
progressing to a postgraduate study do not generally need to
provide a reference with their application.
The majority of our Postgraduate Taught programmes have a start
date in September only:
26 September 2016
25 September 2017.
Programmes provided by the Faculty of Education have a January /
February start date.
Please arrive on time for the start of your course. This is
important so that you do not miss introductory sessions and
lectures. There is a preferred
arrival time for international students.
In exceptional circumstances, the University may allow a later
arrival. This is only possible by prior arrangement with the
University. We consider each case individually and approval of
exception is not automatic. The University cannot guarantee to
provide for any missed lectures or tutorials.
You can apply for a postgraduate course at any time. There are
no specific deadlines but you need to take into account the start
date of your course and all the arrangements you need to make. We
recommend that you apply by 1st August for September course start
(or at least 6 weeks before any other start date). This is
important in particular if you need Tier 4 visa to study as you
need to allow enough time to complete your visa application
process. This usually takes 3-4 weeks.
We may consider later applications or offer entry to the next
If you would like to defer the start of your course, you need to
request this in writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. The
Postgraduate Admissions team will then contact the academic
department for approval. The team will inform you of the decision
(usually by issue of a revised offer letter in due course).
Deferrals are normally only allowed if requested up to six weeks
after the initial start date. After this, you may need to apply
