                                Required score: Lower Second Class

                                Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

                                Applicants will possess a minimum of a 2:2 honours primary degree. An interview may form part of the application process.
