Students will normally be expected to have an upper 2nd or above classification for an Honours degree from a British higher education institution, or an equivalent overseas qualification. Applicants with a lower 2nd will be considered if they can demonstrate a commitment to journalism. Mature students and candidates with non-standard qualifications are also considered, if they have substantial professional or other relevant experience.
Applicants may be required to complete a written/oral admissions test. International students are required to have IELTS 7. UK industry accreditation bodies require IELTS 7.5 for their programme of study.
