Applicants with a higher education degree of at least upper second class honours (2:1) in a relevant arts, humanities or social sciences discipline are encouraged to apply. For non-UK applications we expect a qualification recognised by the University as being equivalent to this. This requirement may be waived for candidates with relevant professional qualifications or experience. In addition, applicants whose first language is not English must obtain an overall IELTS score of 6.5, or an equivalent English language qualification.
