Certain professional qualifications are accepted for postgraduate entry, including the MIBiol, GRSC (formerly GRIC), MBCS, GradlnstP and Stages II and III of the Institute of Statisticians. These have all been specially approved by the University of London.
Other professional qualifications that we accept at our discretion (and usually subject to the completion of a programme of preparatory study) include the major accountancy qualifications (for entry to our MSc Economics programme) and the Final Diploma of the Institute of Linguists (for the MA Modern Languages programmes).
In all cases, the professional qualification must have been gained by written examination rather than ‘by exemption’ from the relevant professional examination.
If you hold a UK BTEC Higher National Diploma, you will usually be asked to show at least two years’ post-qualification work experience relevant to your proposed Master’s degree, and in most cases you will be asked to complete a year of qualifying study before admission.
You will find course-specific entry requirements on the online course descriptions.
