Entry requirements

Although applicants normally require a first degree (usually at least a 2:2) or HND in a relevant subject and a minimum of three years post-qualification experience in a relevant field to undertake postgraduate study, we recognise that many people have a wealth of valuable skills and knowledge developed at work or through training. If you have the potential to succeed in postgraduate or post-experience studies we will consider your application on its individual merits.
