We consider applications on an individual basis, on merit. We look at academic credentials alongside prior experience and evidence of commitment to the course of study.
Applicants with prior qualifications and learning may be exempt from appropriate parts of a course in accordance with the University's policy for the assessment of prior learning and prior experiential learning. Contact the faculty office for further information.
Please note that the closing date for applicants from the EU who are seeking grants from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) is 1 March. This is to meet the submission deadline set by the AHRC.
If you don't meet the above entry requirements, our Pre-Masters programme can prepare you for entry progression onto this degree course.
All non-UK applicants must meet our English language requirements. For this course it is Academic IELTS of 6.5 overall, with special conditions in all elements. Please make sure you read our full guidance about English language requirements, which includes details of other qualifications we'll consider.
Applicants who do not meet the English language requirements may be eligible to join our pre-sessional English language course.
Applicants from one of the recognised majority English speaking countries (MESCs) do not need to meet these requirements.
