General requirements

  • For MSc entry, a good relevant honours degree (first or second class) or equivalent overseas qualifications will be considered.
  • Given the clear practical element of the programmes, we will also consider non-graduate candidates holding less than a good honours degree, or its equivalent, who have compensating qualifications or experience, and we may consider admitting such candidates to the postgraduate diploma programme.
  • In this case, transfer to the MSc might be possible later on if exams and course work are at MSc level.
