We nurture communities and we put our students (drawn from more than 100 countries) at the heart of everything we do.

Entry requirements

  • Undergraduate

    We're currently confirming our 2019 undergraduate entry requirements and will publish them soon.

    In the meantime, please get in touch by emailing or call +44 (0)1482 462190.

    Don't quite meet the requirements? Don't worry - we review every application on an individual basis. Email to find out more. You may also be interested in our degree preparation course, ONCAMPUS.

  • Postgraduate Taught

    The majority of our taught Masters programmes require that you hold a qualification equivalent to a lower second-class Bachelor Honours (or 2.2). 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.

    Lower second-class (2.2) equivalent
    Second Class (Division Two) / 60-69%

    Upper second-class (2.1) equivalent
    Second Class (Division One) / 70-74%

    Don't quite meet the requirements? Don't worry - we review every application on an individual basis. Email
