Postgraduate Entry Requirements

Our postgraduate minimum requirements are:

  • A 2:2 undergraduate UK honours degree or international equivalent or;

  • A degree-equivalent postgraduate diploma/professional qualification.

Applicants who hold a degree from another discipline or have experiential learning in lieu of a degree may also be considered for entry via the Recognition of Prior Learning process (RPL).

Examples of work

For all postgraduate courses you will need:
  • To set up your portal

  • You will then be asked to submit a maximum of six examples of work from your portfolio for consideration. The files should be no larger than 30MB in total and it is essential that no more than six examples of work are uploaded.

  • One reference to support your application. This may be from an academic or a creative practitioner.

Applicants who meet the entry requirements above will be required to submit a personal statement outlining their intentions for MA study.

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL)

If you’re over the age of 21 and don’t have traditional qualifications, we may be able to consider your relevant experience as well as your educational background through the Recognition of Prior Learning process (RPL). Where experience is being presented in lieu of academic achievement applicants must be able to demonstrate substantive experience, for example employment in a related industry.

Your application form should provide as much information as possible for consideration by our admissions department.

Following receipt of your application the admissions team may ask you for further information. You may also be asked to attend an informal interview.
