Normally, a first or upper second-class Honours degree from a UK university (or equivalent overseas qualification) in any degree discipline – all backgrounds considered, including social sciences, arts, engineering, law, chemistry, maths, physics, geology, biology and business.
Lower degree classifications might be considered if there is strength elsewhere (for example, relevant work experience, excellent final project/dissertation, very strong academic letter of reference, very strong application statement linking with career goals).
