MSc Courses Application Update 

Last updated on 14/07/2022

We will continue to consider MSc applications for September 2022 for the following courses on a first come first served basis: 

  • Sustainability and Adaptation 
  • Sustainability in Energy Provision and Demand Management 
  • Sustainable Food and Natural Resources

Please be aware that as the spaces are limited we may close some of these courses at short notice once they reach capacity so we can continue to offer a high quality of learning for each student enrolling at CAT. In this case we will then consider any applications on a waitlist basis and will open applications for September 2023 in late summer. 

If you are considered for our MSc courses waitlist we can’t guarantee a place on the course for entry onto the course in September 2022 but following our current enrolment deadline, dependent on the number of students enrolled, we may then be able to consider some of our early waitlist applicants before considering all other applications on the waitlist for entry onto our courses in September 2023. 

Already started an MSc application? 

If you have recently started an application with us for 2022/23 or have been in communication with us through on a recent Open Day or via an enquiry about applying please get in touch.

We have extended our application deadline for our Master in Sustainable Architecture Part 2 course until 29 July 2022.  Places on the course are offered on a first-come, first-served basis so we recommend applying as soon as you can before the deadline so that you can be invited for an informal interview and enrol on the course before the start of the course in September.

If you have further questions about applying or need support with your application then please get in touch.
