Entry requirements

You should have at least a 2:1 (or its international equivalent) at undergraduate level. We may make an offer based on a lower grade if you can provide evidence of your suitability for the degree. This course will appeal to you if you have studied a subject like science, engineering, the arts or a social science. If your first degree is in business or management, then you might find the course has too much overlap. We will consider all applications.
