Entry requirements

Standard Entry Requirements

The standard entry requirement for our postgraduate taught programmes is a relevant undergraduate qualification degree at a minimum level of 2.1 (upper second class) Honours, or equivalent.

Non-Standard Entry Requirements

If you don't meet the standard entry requirements, we will consider your application on an individual basis, and especially for mature students, prior professional experience may be taken into account.

You will normally be required to: participate in a formal interview, provide evidence of theological reading and engagement at an appropriate level, demonstrate the ability to develop a critical arguement, provide a piece of written work at an appropriate academic level.

You may be admitted to the postgraduate certificate in the first instance, with the possibility of progression to the MA dependent on the marks you achieve in your taught modules, or you may be required to complete some additional study prior to admission to the programme.

We recognise that standard procedures for assessing applications may not always give the full picture. We seek to be an inclusive community, and to take into consideration students' life experiences and academic potential, not only their previous academic qualifications.

If you'd like to apply, but don't meet the standard entry requirments and would like more guidance, please get in touch.
