As a minimum entry requirement for graduate study, you should have an undergraduate degree (minimum 2:1 or equivalent GPA); but relevant research or professional experience may be considered in place of an academic qualification less than a 2:1. In all cases; the degree held must be from a recognised institution.
For applicants who do not come from a `majority English speaking¿ country, you will be asked to provide evidence of your English language proficiency as part of your application. This should be in the form of a Secure English Language Test (SELT), such as IELTS, TOEFL, Pearson Academic (PTE) or Cambridge (CPE) Certificate. Your SELT must have been taken within two years prior to the start of the course and must meet or exceed our minimum requirements of:
- IELTS: Overall 7.0, with 7.0 in writing and reading
- TOEFL: PBT: 600 (5.5 in TWE); CBT: 250 (5.5 in TWE); iBT (25 in each component)
- PTE: Overall 66-73
