Entry Requirements

  • Entry is open to degree graduates. However, those who are able to demonstrate equivalent practical, professional or educational experience of an appropriate kind may be granted admission.
  • In addition, all applicants must gain approval from the programme manager regarding paper selection, and any applicable pre requisite requirements. Where the requisite knowledge or skill does not exist to allow direct entry into a Level 6 or 7 paper, some Level 5 study may be required in addition to the credit requirements.
  • Applicants whose first language is not English, or who come from a country where the language of instruction in schools is not English, must provide evidence of having successfully completed English instruction to a level deemed appropriate by the head of faculty. Evidence may include official transcripts and/or recognised English test results, such as IELTS and TOEFL (IELTS 6.0, minimum 5.5 in all bands).
