Entry requirements

The standard entry requirement is a degree (or the equivalent experience and achievement) in a science or branch of engineering, or in a cognate discipline such as construction, sonic arts or environmental health. Although the IOA Diploma is committed to maintaining academic rigour, it is also committed to an open access policy. If you lack the standard entry level then a qualification in an alternative discipline or substantial relevant professional experience may be an acceptable alternative, as long as you can demonstrate an appropriate level of study skills and baseline knowledge, particularly in mathematics and physics.
