A 2:1 Undergraduate honours degree in history, international relations, political science, economics or other appropriate subject.
Degrees in other subjects, or candidates with lower awards than those above, may be considered: strong references and personal statements are an important part of the application, as is relevant working experience. An alternative professional or other qualification obtained by a formal examination may be approved. Prior experiential learning can also be taken into consideration by the admissions panel. Where alternative professional or other qualifications are not available, evidence will be required that you can undertake academic study to the level required. If necessary, you will be asked to submit a sample of written work.
