Entry requirements

Candidates should have a 2:1 undergraduate degree (or international equivalent).

We may consider candidates with a lower second class degree or with professional qualifications from a recognised institution if they can:

  • show relevant work experience and/or relevant professional qualifications
  • demonstrate that they are highly motivated
  • provide referees from their university or employment strongly supporting their admission onto a master's level programme

In these circumstances we will usually admit a student to our certificate or diploma programmes, possibly with a view to the student transferring to the master's programme if they successfully pass their first two examined subjects. Relevant professional qualifications will be taken into account.
