Some postgraduate courses have prerequisite requirements and require a relevant/related degree, interview or portfolio review. Such postgraduate courses may be precluded from being guaranteed and automatically offered. However, we will assess your application in relation to this when submitted. For example, a BSc Psychology graduate could not be considered for MSc Nursing as it requires a min 2:2 degree in Nursing. Again, a BA (Hons) in Management and leadership graduate could not be considered for MSc Advanced Mechanical Engineering. They would however, be considered for the MSc Engineering Management degree.
