The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course for students planning to start their course in 2019, and should be used as a general guide. We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that different applicants may be made higher or lower offers for the same course, depending on their other achievements.
Degree and experience
Normally a 2:1 in a related subject. However, given the nature of the course it is anticipated that students from a variety of backgrounds will apply. For example, practitioners without a good first degree but with a substantial professional experience and portfolio will be considered. Applicants with non-relevant academic qualifications may be assessed for accreditation prior learning (APL) equivalence on the basis of appropriate professional or work-related experience.
English language requirements
IELTS 6.5 overall, with 6.0 in writing and at least 5.5 in the other parts.
International students whose language skills do not match the IELTS scores set out here should consider applying for this course through the Extended Masters programme at the university's Language Institute.
