Entry criteria and application

Applicants should have an undergraduate degree with a minimum classification of 2:1 in a field relevant to the project for which they are applying.  A Master’s degree is desirable for all projects, and essential for some. Any additional project-specific entry criteria can be found at the bottom of this page. In addition, candidates for whom English is a second language should meet the University’s minimum English-language requirements.  If you have not already studied a degree programme that was taught and examined in the medium of English, the minimum overall IELTS score is 6.5 with no score lower than 6.0 in Reading, Writing, Speaking and Listening.  Applications for more than one project from the same candidate will be considered.
