You'll typically require a bachelors degree or equivalent qualification relevant to your intended specialist area of study i.e. Art, Humanities and Languages (Study Area 1), Education, Psychology and Health Sciences (Study Area 2), Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (Study Area 3) and Business, Finance, Human Resources and Law (Study Area 4). If you have alternative study/experience you feel is relevant to equip you for postgraduate study, you may still apply to the programme and this will be considered by the admissions team.
As you build up your qualification, any individual module entry requirements (including prescribed study order, pre-requisite study or access to a particular work setting etc.) will need to be separately met, where specified. Please refer to individual module entry requirements and descriptions to ensure that you are adequately prepared before starting to study for this qualification.
