The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2017. They should be used as a general guide.
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
- Good honours degree or equivalent and you must be working in a relevant professional role.
- Evidence of an employment-based research project may be acceptable in place of an honours degree – each case will be considered on its merit.
Recognition of prior learning
Masters (level-7) credits which have been achieved through previous study may be used for entry to the course. Many PGCE and some BA programmes carry up to 60 level-7 credits, and these may contribute towards the 180 credits required for the masters award.
Postgraduate certificates studied at the University of Brighton (such as Autism, Dyslexia, Evidence-informed Practice and Primary Mathematics Specialist Teacher Programme) all carry 60 level-7 credits which can be used for entry to the course.
Students with level-7 credits usually join the MA programme from the third core module.
Claims for recognition of prior learning will be considered in line with university guidance and each applicant will be considered on their individual merits.
Prospective candidates will be asked to contact the Admissions Tutor to discuss these options.
For non-native speakers of English
IELTS 7.0 overall with 6.5 in writing and no less than 6.5 in all other components.
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.
