We would normally expect you to have an Honours degree at Upper Second Class (2.1) and/or an appropriate masters degree. Some supervisors may ask you for additional entry requirements such as relevant work experience, evidence of written work, or previous study of a particular subject. Entry requirements may vary so it is important to discuss your application in principle before submitting a formal application.
Months of entry
