Entry requirements

A minimum of a lower second class honours degree (2:2). We do not specify a required degree subject with cohorts ranging across the degree disciplines. Previous cohorts have seen a range of degree subjects ranging from philosophy and history through business studies to computing or engineering. The primary requirement is the aptitude and motivation to engage with subject areas that are new, allied to an appreciation that some subject areas may require greater engagement than others in order to successfully complete the course.

We will also consider applicants with alternative professional qualifications and Continuing Professional Development records. And, similarly, we would consider those with at least three to five years’ relevant professional experience. To qualify on this basis, you will need to be able to demonstrate clear career progression with an upward trajectory. This should include increasing responsibilities, particularly the control of resources, people, and finance. Applicants relying on work experience for admission will be interviewed to determine their suitability, motivation and aptitude for study on the courses within the programme.

For non-standard entry the course leadership team may interview applicants who may be required to complete a written piece of work.
