Entry requirements

The programme has been designed to be attractive to students from a wide range of academic, professional and disciplinary backgrounds.

Normally, students should have a good first degree (minimum of 2.2) or equivalent professional qualifications. Alternatively, students with relevant experience and who can demonstrate their ability to study at postgraduate level may be able to apply through the University's Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning (APEL) route. Applicants should have fluent writing skills and be numerate. Overseas students whose first language is not English will need to have a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 or TOEFL of 575 (written version) or 90 (internet version), assessed in the last three years.
