Students commencing the MA in Social Research Methods will have either a first degree or a Masters degree in the Social Sciences or related areas. A good first degree (of 2:1 or first class) is normally required, although experience and/or strong supporting references may justify entry with a lower grade. Those with non-social science back grounds may also be considered if their experience and references suggest support for this.
Applications from international students are welcome. International qualifications will be evaluated in line with the National Recognition Information Centre (NARIC) guidelines.
