University Of Chichester Masters

Postgraduate Study (MA/MSc/PGDip)

As a general guide, for postgraduate study you’ll need to hold the equivalent of a good honours degree (2.1 or above) from a recognised university.

We also accept applications from students who have completed a ‘top-up’ degree at a UK university. If you hold a UK degree you don’t need to provide an IELTS or other test certificate.

We also accept HND level qualifications if you have:

  • relevant and substantial professional work experience and/or qualifications;
  • completed a recognised pre-masters or graduate diploma in a relevant subject

Qualifications Check

Please contact the Admissions Office to find out if your qualification is suitable. If you do not have a UK qualification you can use UK NARIC to find out how the qualifications that you already have compare to UK qualifications. UK NARIC is the national agency that provides information and advice about how qualifications and skills from overseas compare to the UK’s qualifications. You can find out more on the UK NARIC website.

English Language

All students whose first language is not English should have met the minimum English language requirement before commencing your programme. For direct entry to MSc and MA taught programmes you can apply with a score of 6.5 (Cambridge English Scale score 176 to 184), with no element less than 6.0 (Cambridge English Scale score 169 to 175) except for MSc International Business programmes (see below).

Pre-sessional Language and Study Skills programmes

Applicants who have met the general entrance requirements of their programme but who have an IELTS score 0.5 below that required (or equivalent other qualification) may be admitted to the University’s Pre-Sessional Programme. We encourage all our Masters level students to arrive early and study the six week Pre-Sessional Language & Study Skills Programme.
