We have two commencing intakes intakes per year, Semester 1 (February) and Semester 2 (August). Not all courses are available in both intakes, so please check your specific course for exact timelines. The dates below are the standard closing dates that apply to many of our courses. However, closing dates can vary, some courses can have earlier closing dates. Research degrees have separate research periods.

Refer to the UAC website for exact dates and times to submit your application and payment for each round. Note, applications to Sciences Po degrees and diplomas need to be made direct to the University, not through UAC. Find a course to check the specific closing date.
