A good Honours degree, or equivalent qualification, in an appropriate subject. We also consider candidates with other relevant qualifications and individuals with a minimum of 3 years' work experience. Those without formal qualifications need to demonstrate relevant work experience and the ability to study at postgraduate level. International entry requirements: We accept the equivalent of the above from a recognised overseas qualification. English language requirements: Students must have competence in English language and we normally require grade C GCSE or an equivalent qualification. The most common English Language requirements for international students are IELTS 6.5 (with minimum 6.0 in all 4 components) or TOEFL internet based 87 (with at least 21 in listening and writing, 22 in speaking and 23 in reading). Middlesex also offers a pre'sessional course that ranges from 5'17 weeks, depending on your level of English. Successful completion of this course would meet English language entry requirements.
