Meeting academic requirements is only one of the factors taken into account when selectors make their decision on an application. Other factors include suitability for the course, proficiency in English (you will need to have passed a College-approved English Language test), relevant work experience and references may also be important.

We encourage you to look at the sections headed ‘Entry requirements’ included in each of the Faculty and Departmental pages on our course list pages as they contain guidance on the selection criteria for your chosen programme, the subjects you need to have studied and additional entrance tests, if applicable.
