Entry Requirements

The normal entry requirement for a Masters programme is a good Honours degree (upper second or better) or an equivalent professional qualification. However, there are circumstances when appropriate career experience may be taken into account as an alternative to an academic qualification. In addition to the normal requirements, applicants must be in employment in a health care-related organisation at the time the programme starts in order to optimise the application of theory and the action learning elements of the programme.
