An upper-second-class Honours degree, or international equivalent, in a relevant subject, such as the arts, humanities or social sciences (eg geography, planning, urban studies, environmental studies, sociology, politics, history or business studies). We will also consider applicants on an individual basis with lower or non-standard qualifications who have relevant industry experience. Applicants based in the UK may be invited to interview.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5, Pearson's PTE Academic Test 62 or equivalent.
IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.
