UK & Ireland MBA Application Deadlines for Fall 2019

Deadlines for MBA programs in England, Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales

The first deadlines for UK and Ireland MBA programs beginning in the fall of 2019 are fast approaching.

Here we list upcoming deadlines for a select group of full-time MBA programs in the UK and Ireland, offered by some of the most popular business schools in the countries.

Where school offers multiple deadlines, it is still advised to apply as early as possible, to give yourself the best chance at securing a scholarship.

It also pays to get in early at schools where there are rolling admissions - admission to these programs close as soon as the class is filled.

While we have made every effort to publish correct deadlines, it is advisable to double-check the dates on the program's website.
