What you’ll need
You’ll typically be expected to have an undergraduate degree to gain entry on our postgraduate qualifications. But you may also have professional experience, other qualifications, or prior university-level study that’ll help set you up for success. You’ll find individual entry requirements on our qualification and module descriptions.
Entry requirements could be:
- an undergraduate degree in a related subject
- employment in a relevant professional setting
- a number of years’ professional experience on which to build your learning.
In some cases, if you don’t hold the required prerequisite qualifications, we may accept significant experience as ‘alternative entry’ onto a qualification.
Our module and qualification descriptions may also include information about:
- other knowledge and skills you might need (such as your level of English comprehension, if it’s not your first language)
- requirements relating to the context of your study (for example, education students may need access to a group of learners; healthcare students may need access to a healthcare setting)
- diagnostic quizzes to help you decide if you’re ready
- advice about routes through the qualification
- time limits for completion.
Check the Entry requirements section on the qualifications you’re interested in to find out what you need to get started.
