Entry Requirements

The normal qualification for admission to the MA programme is an upper second class honours degree. Other qualifications, however, may be acceptable and the Department welcomes mature students. Students taking the MA degree may or may not have previous experience of our subjects.

It is possible to include an element of language training within the MA programme by taking an Asian or African language as one of the two ‘minor’ modules.
