Course Additional Entry

The normal minimum qualifications are a 2nd Class undergraduate degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Candidates are expected to have some basic computing experience. A 2nd acceptable qualification is a degree of lower than 2nd Class Honours standard, or an equivalent overseas qualification, in a subject appropriate to the programme, plus extensive background and experience in the field. The latter implies considerable experience as a professional at a senior level. For applicants without a 1st degree or full professional membership, but with relevant and substantial work experience in the field, a special qualifying examination may be set.
