Entry requirements

The programme entry requirement is a 2.1 degree in any subject. However, for candidates with a 2.2 Honours without work experience, our course has an internal mechanism, under which a request for approval has to be made by the Option Convenor to the Director of the course before an offer is made. A special case will only be valid for someone who has appropriate and relevant additional work or academic experience to compensate for the degree(s) being below the College's minimum entry requirement(s). The department will decide what relevant experience is and the duration or extent that is required to compensate for the requirements that are not fulfilled.
