Leadership and Management in Health PgCert/PgDip/MSc top-up/MSc: Entry requirements

What you need to apply for this course

We value work experience as highly as academic qualifications when selecting students for this course. We look for candidates who can not only support each other throughout the programme, but also contribute to the kind of lively classroom discussions that enhance and cement learning.

PgCert/PgDip/MSc programme

Entry to this programme is assessed on either academic attainment or work experience. You will need:

  • a good honours degree from a UK university (or an equivalent qualification from a recognised international higher education provider) in a relevant discipline. This is usually health or social sciences, though other qualifications at honours degree level are acceptable; or
  • at least four years' work experience in middle or senior management, including participation in appropriate training events; and
  • candidates need to demonstrate their motivation and ability to work at postgraduate level: they must be well prepared, disciplined and able to manage their time and workload effectively.

MSc top-up programme

Candidates must have a Postgraduate Diploma in Leadership and Management in Health (a level 7 qualification worth 120 credits).

Advanced standing admission

Advanced standing can be given for relevant educational or professional achievements. The Kingston University procedures for the assessment of prior learning (APL) and prior experiential learning (APEL) will be applied.

English language requirements

All non-UK applicants must meet our English language requirement, which is Academic IELTS of 6.5 overall, with no element below 6.0. 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.
