Getting on to a postgraduate course

All postgraduate qualifications at the University are subject to entry requirements. These are necessary to ensure that you have the knowledge or experience to provide a good base to study at postgraduate level. We believe in providing opportunities to people with passion to succeed and our entry requirements are not always based on academic attainment alone.

Our entry requirements

Depending on the course and level of study you are interested in, our entry requirements can vary significantly. At Master's level you will usually require an undergraduate degree, possibly in the same or a related subject. You may also be expected to have secured a specific grade. Other relevant qualifications may also help to support your application.

If you have relevant work experience in your subject area this can also help you to get a place on a course. If you do not hold an undergraduate degree but can demonstrate a sufficient level of work experience in your application this could improve your chance of getting a place.

In some cases a portfolio of your work may be required, e.g. to study a Master's in Fine Art you would need to submit examples of your work which would be reviewed as part of your application.

A good standard of written and spoken English is an important pre-requisite for postgraduate study.
