The normal entry requirement of the scheme is a 2.2 (or above) degree in a related discipline (for example childhood studies, education, psychology, sociology, mental health). Applicants unsure as to the suitability of their qualifications should contact the admissions tutor.
Applicants who do not have an undergraduate degree, must instead have significant relevant work experience. In these cases the admissions tutor will assess the appropriateness of this experience in relation to the programme.
Applicants may also be asked to attend an interview.
Applicants will be required to undergo a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) Check (previously known as a Criminal Records Bureau, or CRB, Check). International students will also need this, or an approved University equivalent.
International applicants - English language requirements: Students are required to have a minimum of IELTS 6.5, with a minimum of 6.0 in all domains, or a University approved equivalent, prior to starting the programme.
