Entry requirements

All applications will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Ordinarily, the minimum entry criteria for each stage (PGCert, PGDip & MA) of the Maritime Security programme are as follows:

  • Applicants should hold a honours degree at 2:2 or above (or equivalent international grade/qualification), from a recognised University, preferably in a social science subject (e.g. Peace and Conflict Studies, International Relations, Security Studies, Politics, Development Studies).
  • Applications from those who do not hold a honours degree at 2:2 or above but can demonstrate at least three years’ work experience in a relevant field will also be considered. Here a careful evaluation of the applicant’s capacity to complete the programme successfully, including assessment, where appropriate, through an admissions interview and review of a writing sample will take place.
