Entry requirements

The School adheres to the University’s guidelines on required academic qualifications as specified in the Academic Quality Handbook. Postgraduate students are normally required to have attained an initial degree awarded by a university or an approved-degree awarding body. However, these guidelines also allow non-standard applications from students who may not conform to the academic requirements of the orthodox method of entry. The School is, therefore, able to consider applications from mature students who may have relevant experience and/ or qualifications other than those outlined above.
