Postgraduate Admissions

Expected Academic Standard

Applicants for this course should have achieved a UK High II.i Honours Degree.

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

The minimum requirement is a high II.i or the equivalent in an undergraduate degree. Applicants with degrees in film or media studies and related disciplines are encouraged to apply, as are students with backgrounds in literary studies, art history and other areas.  In addition to this, applicants should be able to demonstrate an advanced level of familiarity with relevant research methods and topics within their field and readiness for advanced independent research.

All 'by thesis' applicants will be interviewed. If an application is found to be unsuitable, it is a possibility that we may offer a place on the MPhil 'by Advanced Study' instead.
