The minimum entry qualifications for the programme are:
BA or BSc: In normal circumstances, at least an upper second-class honours degree will be required.
Exceptionally, an equivalent will be considered on an individual basis-for example relevant experience in the workforce, supplemented by a written sample analysing and justifying why the candidate should be accepted.
All candidates will be interviewed either in person or by Skype/phone.
You must also submit a 3,000-word sample of writing and a personal statement (1,000 words) plus references.
All non-UK applicants must meet our English language requirement, which is Academic IELTS of 6.5 overall, with no element below 5.5. Make sure you read our full guidance about English language requirements, which includes details of other qualifications we consider.
Applicants who do not meet the English language requirements could be eligible to join our pre-sessional English language course.
Applicants from a recognised majority English speaking countries (MESCs) do not need to meet these requirements.
