Entry to the MRes programme is in mid-September, and to the Mst programme normally in September or January.

Admission to all programmes normally supposes that you hold a meritorious undergraduate degree, normally 2.1 or better or its equivalent (e.g. GPA of 3.6 or better on a 4 point scale).

If your first language is not English you must satisfy the University’s language requirements for entry, by submitting a recognised language certificate (such as a TOEFL or IELTS certificate).
