January 2023 intake now closed

Please note, our Professional Practice in Architecture (RIBA 3) PG Cert is still available to start in February.

Start a course in January / February

Every year we offer you the opportunity to start many of our undergraduate and postgraduate courses in January / February. Applications for the 2023 intake are currently closed but please check back at a later date to see what January 2024 courses are available.

Between around October and January, if you're from the UK and applying for a full-time undergraduate degree, you can usually call our hotline or complete a quick online application to apply for our January intake. During the rest of the year (and if you're an international student or an EU student who requires Student visa sponsorship) you'll be able to apply by visiting the relevant course page and selecting "Apply direct". Part-time courses and postgraduate courses can also be applied for in this way.

Further details on how to apply can be found below.

Fast-track your studies

Study with us in the new year and you can complete your three-year degree in two-and-a-half years* starting in January/February. The first six months involve intensive learning, with seminars and lectures throughout the summer. We offer more support and smaller classes so that you can progress quickly in your studies and gain some great learning skills for the rest of your degree.

*Please note, any three-year courses in our Guildhall School of Business and Law (covering our business, law and language degrees) do not have the accelerated first year and will take three or four full years to complete, meaning the course would finish in January 2026 if studied full-time from January 2023.

How to apply

If you're a UK student or an EU student with settled or pre-settled status, you can usually call our hotline or complete our quick online application.

Reasons to start your degree in January / February

  • You don't have to wait until the autumn to start your course.
  • You'll have more contact time with your lecturers – this means greater support to help you succeed.
  • Completing your course in a shorter time means you spend less money on accommodation.

If you've already got your entry qualification, you don't need to wait until September to begin studying a postgraduate course and start increasing your earning potential.

How to apply

To apply for a postgraduate course, you must apply online.

Reasons to start your postgraduate course in January

  • It's simple to apply online – just browse our postgraduate courses starting in January and click the apply button from the course page.
  • Providing you meet the eligibility criteria, you may be able to benefit from a government Postgraduate Loan to help fund your studies.
