Entry Requirements

Applicants would normally hold an honours degree in a relevant subject

Candidates for the Master of Arts degree must normally have a good honours degree in a relevant subject to be admitted to the course.  Candidates for the ‘Christian Engagement with Islam’ pathway must have completed ST6330 (Islam in Contemporary Britain) or its equivalent prior to entry.

Those who do not have the formal qualifications necessary to gain entry directly on to the MA courses are able to apply to the Postgraduate Diploma or Certificate. The Diploma is identical to the MA in all aspects except that the PGDip does not require the completion of a dissertation and it does not require the same standards of achievement. The Postgraduate Certificate requires completion of TWO taught units (60 credits) including required unit(s), does not require the completion of a dissertation and it does not require the same standards of achievement. Students who wish to progress on to complete the MA may do so, provided they have performed at the required level.

Non-graduates may be admitted to the PG Certificate on the basis of academic work or a combination of academic and prior experiential learning which indicates that they have reached the level of academic standing equivalent to a graduate. Students who wish to be considered under these provisions should apply to the college for evaluation of their previous experience. In such cases, they may be accepted at the discretion of the Academic Board provided that in addition to the normal requirements of the course of study they attend such course units, prior to the commencement of the PG course, and complete such examinations as may be prescribed by the Academic Board in each case.

Applicants whose first language is not English

All teaching at the College is conducted in English, so applicants whose first language is not English need to demonstrate proficiency in English through completion of an IELTS test with acceptable scores. If you are a candidate for a postgraduate course, you will need a minimum IEL TS score of 6.5, or its equivalent, overall. You are responsible for arranging to take the appropriate test and for submitting the documentary evidence.
