Entry requirements

We welcome applicants from a range of backgrounds, and encourage you to apply even if you don’t hold conventional higher education entry qualifications.

This process is called Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL). Prior learning includes both formal or 'certified' learning (such as training courses not run by universities or colleges) and informal or 'experiential' learning (gained as a result of work experience or self-study).

You’ll need to provide evidence of your formal learning, professional experience and self-directed study, so we can see if it can be recognised as appropriate preparation for entry to a course - or in some cases allow you to claim credits towards a specific qualification.

You'll need to complete an application demonstrating that you’re able to study at the right level for your course, and in the same subject area. APL applicants using experience to apply should note there is a £200 application fee for entry with advanced standing or with exemption from specific modules or credit.

You’ll develop a contemporary overview of the industry, including the key challenges and drivers for change.
