Academic Entry Requirements
The programme welcomes applications from a diverse range of backgrounds. Evidence of the ability to carry out research successfully will be an advantage, but this research does not have to be in the same area as your intended PhD project.
Applicants will be reviewed on qualifications, experience and potential to undertake a research degree.
The minimum entrance qualification is an Upper Second-Class Honours degree in a relevant subject, or an equivalent overseas qualification. Applicants who do not meet the minimum entrance requirements may be admitted if they hold an alternative qualification of an equivalent or higher level in a relevant subject or can prove relevant professional experience which demonstrates that the applicant can follow and complete the programme.
English Language Requirements
You are required at the time of application to demonstrate that you meet the minimum English requirements for Band D as prescribed by the university’s English Language requirements. Please note being educated in English in an African country does not mean you meet the English Language requirements.
