What do we need from you? Check out our academic and language requirements.
Applicants for Masters programmes must hold (or expect to be awarded) at least an upper second class honours degree (or international equivalent) in a field of study relevant to the programme applied for. Guidance of the equivalency of international qualifications is provided by the International Office (see link below).
If you are applying for any of the University Master's scholarship awards, you must ensure that academic references are uploaded to your EUCLID study application before the closing deadlines for funding, and also ensure that these are suitable for consideration for funding award purposes. Scholarship funding is highly competitive and your references need to focus on the strength of your academic capabilities.
Applicants for research programmes must also submit a research proposal demonstrating their knowledge of their chosen field of research, which will be closely scrutinised as part of the decision-making process. Only candidates with a first degree in a clearly relevant field, who submit a strong and viable research proposal, will be considered for the long-dissertation mode.
Applicants for PhD programmes must additionally hold a relevant Master's degree with an overall average mark of at least 65% (or equivalent marks if the degree is not from the UK), and a mark of at least 65% in the Master's dissertation will also normally be required .
Generally, where English is not the first language, candidates must provide evidence that they have taken and passed a recognised test for academic English no more than two years before the proposed date of admission (see link below). This does not apply if the qualifications held were taught and examined in English and taken no more than two years before the proposed date of admission (see link below).
