The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2016. They should be used as a general guide. If you are thinking of starting your course in 2015 contact the course team for entry requirements.
We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that you could receive a lower conditional offer than the typical offer, informed by our assessment of your complementary non-academic achievements and experiences. For courses that require interview or portfolio review, this may also be considered in the level of any conditional offer that follows if your application is successful.
Degree and experience
- be registered with the appropriate professional body in the UK and should have a minimum of three years post-registration experience
- be working for a minimum of 15 hours a week, in a role which is suitable for the development of an advanced level of practice
- normally be expected to hold a first degree.
Graduates who have not studied in the previous five years would normally be required to complete and pass a single module relevant to the course, before enrolling on the full course. Credits from this module will then count towards the total number of credits needed.
Applicants without a first degree would normally be expected to demonstrate an ability to study at level 7 by completing a level 7 module, for example a study skills module, before enrolling for the full course.
Students require the support of a workplace mentor who is educated to at least masters level.
Applicants who meet the admissions criteria will also normally be required to attend an interview and provide one academic reference and one employer reference as to their suitability for the course.
