Entry Requirements

Generally a 2:1 Honours Degree (or overseas equivalent) in Sociology or a Social Science subject is required for direct master's entry.

However the MSc in Sociological Research course is a specialised, and research focused course and not all undergraduate social science degrees will provide the appropriate background. Potential applicants are advised that transcripts will be checked to ensure appropriate material has been covered.

When assessing your academic record we take into account your grades, your academic references, and the standing of the institution where you studied.
