Postgraduate Admissions

Expected Academic Standard

Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK Masters (Pass).

If your degree is not from the UK, please check International Qualifications to find the equivalent in your country.

The Admissions Committee will normally require a master's degree, but we will consider applications from candidates with an undergraduate degree equivalent to a II.i honours degree at a UK University, provided they can demonstrate exceptional personal achievements relevant to their research proposal.
