Entry requirements

Normally, an undergraduate degree in a relevant discipline at a good 2.2 or above from a recognised university will be required, and for non-native speakers of English, an IELTS (or equivalent) score of 6.5 or above or above. If however, you have recently decided to make a change in the direction of your career and have 5+ years’ work experience at senior level in a relevant career/industry sector and can demonstrate prior experiential learning, this may be accepted as a substitute for formal HE qualifications.
