Entry requirements

For admission to the programme we would normally expect that you hold a 2:1 Honours degree (or equivalent). While we normally only accept applicants who meet this criteria, if you have a high 2:2 or equivalent, are coming from a different academic background which is equivalent to degree level, or have relevant work experience, we would welcome your application.

We welcome applications from students who hold qualifications and degrees that are not in education. These may include degrees and qualifications undertaken in the social sciences, natural sciences, humanities, arts or business studies. Please note that this list is not exhaustive and every application will be considered on a case by case basis. We would encourage applicants to use their personal statement to indicate their interests in education and any relevant work experience.

Some modules require Disclosure & Barring Service checks.

For full information, including English language requirements and international equivalencies, please visit our website.
