The majority of our research Masters programmes and PhDs require that you hold a qualification equivalent to an upper second-class Bachelor Honours (or 2.1), although some programmes, especially PhDs may have higher entry requirements. Please check our course pages for specific entry requirements.
We generally consider a Bachelor Honours degree or Professional Bachelor degree of a minimum four years in duration (either must sit at level 8 of the South African National Qualifications Framework) awarded by a nationally recognised higher education institution in South Africa to be comparable to a UK Bachelor Honours degree.
