Successful applicants must normally hold at least a second class honours degree from a discipline relevant to the programme. Applicants with a lower class of degree and/or with a qualification in other subject areas will be individually considered and will usually be interviewed prior to being offered a place on the course.
Applicants without a degree, but who have considerable relevant work experience and/or a professional development qualification, such as a Diploma in Emergency Planning, will also be considered for admission on merit. Such applicants will be interviewed and may be required to provide supportive evidence of their career to date.
Applications are encouraged from all suitably qualified persons, irrespective of age, race, gender or disability. The applications and admissions procedure conforms fully to the University’s policy concerning Equal Opportunities.
Applicants whose first language is not English are required to provide evidence of an ability to follow instruction in English. This is normally 6.5 IELTS or equivalent.
