Check the entry requirements

All courses have their own entry requirements, which can differentiate substantially depending on the programme of study. You’ll need to check this on a case-by-case basis by searching for a course and visiting the course page. As a guide the minimum standards we generally require for taught courses are at least a lower second class UK honours degree or equivalent (although some courses require an upper second).

International students

We welcome applications from candidates offering many different international qualifications. You can see how your current degree score or GPA equates to the British system on the International Office equivalent scores page. Please include your marksheets/transcripts and grading criteria when you apply.

We also require evidence that your English Language capability is of a level that will enable you to succeed on your chosen course of postgraduate study. Different courses ask for different standards of English language achievement. See full details of the English language requirements for all courses and departments.
