Entry to our graduate diploma or taught masters programmes usually requires either a UK upper second-class (2:1) or a lower second-class (2:2) undergraduate degree. For most courses, your major subject or content of your Bachelor degree may also be considered. Please check our Course Finder for detailed entry requirements.
UK Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1)
A four-year Bachelor degree or three-year Baccalauréat with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4 point scale, 6.0 on a 9 point scale, 8.0 on a 12 point scale or 73% (where the pass mark is 50%). Please note that for graduate admission to either the 5 year Medicine or Dentistry degrees, a minimum CGPA of 3.3 on a scale of 4.0 (78%) is required.
UK Lower Second-Class Honours (2:2)
A four-year Bachelor degree or three-year Baccalauréat with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.7 on a 4 point scale, 5.0 on a 9 point scale, 7.0 on a 12 point scale or 70% (where the pass mark is 50%). Equivalence to 2.7 may vary slightly depending on institutional grading system.
When submitting your application, please ensure that you upload copies of official transcripts for completed programmes as well as those currently in progress. Degree award certificates for programmes already complete should also be provided.
Sometimes, it may be possible to exercise flexibility in the case of applicants who have completed their degree with slightly lower grades than those outlined in their offer letter. In these cases, the decision will be at the discretion of the Academic Selector.
On completion of your degree, please forward a copy of your official transcript and award certificate to email@example.com to confirm the award of your qualification and the overall grade. Unfortunately, we cannot advise you further until we receive this documentation.
