Successful applicants will have a good undergraduate degree or equivalent in a field related to language, English, or education. Note that final year undergraduate students may apply early if they can indicate their expected GPA or final degree result. Such applicants may receive conditional offers, thus ensuring a place on our MA if they subsequently achieve a good degree result and fulfil the conditions of their offer. Early application is strongly recommended as demand for places on this MA is very high.
International students need to have an English language score of 6.5 on the IELTS test (normally with at least 6.5 in the Reading and Writing components), or the equivalent on a test approved by the UK Border Agency. The English language test certificate should be submitted with the online application form.
For those whose scores fall very slightly below the required level when they apply, studying on our pre-sessional course in English language and study skills may be deemed satisfactory.
