Entry requirements

1st Class or a good 2nd Class degree. In many cases PhD applicants have studied to Master's level, though this is not compulsory. Applicants without an MA are required to follow the research training module offered by the school. We are able to accept students on a distance-learning basis, but they should have already acquired the skills taught in the introductory seminars, or should make arrangements to attend equivalent seminars at another institution, at their own expense. Students whose first language is not English are expected to have achieved an IELTS score of at least 6.5 with no element below 6.0.
