Entry requirements

Each award has specific entry criteria therefore please contact the programme leader initially. Usually a First degree or equivalent (such as a professional healthcare qualification with appropriate experience in the chosen field) is required. However we are willing to consider prior academic learning at degree level from a health care background, where a first degree has not been fully obtained. Please contact the programme lead for further information. If your first language is not English you will need to prove you are proficient in English by having IELTS 7.
