General Requirements for Entry to Postgraduate Programme

  1. The standard of academic attainment normally expected of an applicant for registration as a student on a taught postgraduate programme is that of a good honour’s degree, which is defined as a first class or second-class honours degree, in a relevant subject discipline. Holders of other qualifications will be considered individually.
  2. The nomination of two referees who could supply evidence of the applicant’s ability.
  3. For professional programmes, as an alternative to a good honour’s degree, consideration will be given to applicants who:
  • have a professional diploma, or equivalent, at an appropriate level in a relevant subject discipline; or
  • demonstrate significant professional experience at an appropriate level, together with relevant qualifications.

General Requirements for Applicants whose First Language is Not English

  • Applicants whose first language is not English will be required to provide evidence of their proficiency in English. Usually, this is through a IELTS score of at least 6.5.
  • *Requirements may defer depending on the course you are applying for.

Visa Requirments

  • The new Points-Based System will affect Student and Student Dependant applications made on or after this date, regardless of the date on which your CAS was assigned. Applicants who have a valid CAS issued before 5 October at 9:00 under the Tier 4 Route will be able to use it for an application under the Student Route.
  • Students will require a total of 70 (non-tradeable) points to be granted leave. Points will be awarded for meeting the requirements of the route, which comprise of the sponsorship requirements, English language requirements and maintenance / finance requirements.
  • Unlike other applicants, EU/EEA/Swiss citizens will be granted ‘secure digital status’ (rather than a vignette or BRP). As part of their visa application, they will not be required to submit evidence to show that they meet the financial requirements or provide their academic qualifications used to obtain an offer of study. However, the Home Office does retain the right to request sight of these documents.
