Entry requirements

The minimum requirement for entry to this programme is a second class Bachelor’s degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard.

For entry onto the MA Education, Health Promotion and International Development, we are particularly looking for applicants who can demonstrate a sufficient combination of experience in, and understanding of, health and health education/promotion, participatory practice and participatory research, in one or more low-/middle- income countries. Applicants are normally expected to have a minimum of one month’s experience working (paid or voluntary) in a low-/middle-income country.

If your education has not been conducted in the English language, you will be expected to demonstrate evidence of an adequate level of English proficiency.
