Entry Conditions You should normally have gained a second class honours degree in a non-relevant discipline from a university of the United Kingdom or the Republic of Ireland, or an equivalent standard in a professional or other qualification. Exceptionally, applicants who do not satisfy the requirements may be admitted if they can provide evidence of their ability to undertake the programme through the accreditation of prior experiential learning.
