Admission Requirement / Eligibility Criteria

You are normally required to have a first or upper second class honours degree (or equivalent from a university outside the UK). Apart from the standard university entry requirements, we normally expect students to have a professional background in education/training with experience of teaching. Ideally we would like students to have had at least two years’ experience of teaching/training but will consider applications from good students with at least one year’s experience. If you have a slightly lower degree qualification than usual, this can be compensated for by good teaching experience.
