Postgraduate study
Edinburgh: Extraordinary futures await.

Academic qualifications

To study at postgraduate level, you must normally hold a degree in an appropriate subject, with an excellent or very good classification (equivalent to first or upper second class honours in the UK).

We may also accept equivalent qualifications or work experience.

Check the specific requirements for your programme before you apply.

Where entry requirements specify a required number of credits these are UK credits. 20 UK credits are equal to 10 European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System (ECTS) credits.

Entry requirements

Entry requirements vary between degree programmes and you should check you have the necessary qualifications before applying. Find the specific entry requirements for your chosen programme in our degree finder.
