Application Deadlines: MBA Programs in the UK & Ireland Beginning in Fall 2020

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

Are you looking to start an MBA in the UK or Ireland in the fall of 2020? Then you'll certainly want to make sure you get your applications in on time. Below we've compiled a list of MBA application deadlines for programs offered by business schools in the UK and Ireland. 

The list below focuses on full-time MBA programs, with some exceptions (where noted). Some business schools have not yet announced their deadlines; the list will be updated when more information is available.

Many schools offer deadlines in rounds (or stages). Where a school offers multiple MBA application deadlines, it is advised to apply as early as possible, to give yourself the best chance at securing a scholarship. However, don't rush and make sure your application is complete before hitting the submit button.

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.
