Entry requirements

This MSc is appropriate for students from a range of backgrounds. It functions both as an advanced study course for experienced practitioners, and as a conversion route from other backgrounds such as undergraduate science, social policy, and non-science public engagement roles. Official entry requirements are expected to include an Upper Second (2:1) honours degree in the United Kingdom, or the overseas equivalent, in an appropriate discipline. An applicant may also be exceptionally accepted based on evidence of alternative study, research or professional experience, provided this meets the University's central requirements.
