Prospective students will, as rule, be expected to have a First University Degree (Bachelor or equivalent) plus relevant work experience. Applicants not holding a University degree may, exceptionally, be accepted if their work experience is such as to have provided them with learning opportunities which may be regarded as equivalent to University level outcomes. The Programme will be delivered in the English language and prospective students will, therefore, be required to have a good command of this language in oral and written form.
The admissions process is designed to assure the Programme team as well as the applicant that they will be able to successfully complete the Programme. The admission process involves exchange of information via mail / e-mail, telephone conversations and possibly personal interviews. This process will also act as a diagnostic process allowing the identification of students who may need additional guidance and support in undertaking post-graduate study. This will be augmented by referring the student to additional resources, within the University or on-line. Students may be enrolled, in the first instance, as Associate students taking two modules of study. Satisfactory performance in these modules would result in registration on the Master programme.
It is not envisaged that students will gain exemptions based on previous qualifications from any modules on this Programme.
