MRes Entrance Requirements
Candidates are selected for places entirely on merit and applications are welcomed from all over the world.
Candidates for all taught postgraduate courses are assessed on their existing qualities as demonstrated in their work and in their interview, as well as on their potential to benefit from the course and to achieve required standards overall. The assessment will consider: creativity, imagination and innovation evident in the work; ability to articulate the intentions of the work; intellectual engagement in relevant areas; appropriate technical skills; and overall interview performance, including oral use of English.
Candidates should have a good first degree in a related subject. We welcome applications from students of all ages, and view both prior academic and professional experience as valuable.
Online applications should be submitted with a CV and a brief (500-word) statement that outlines your motivation for applying and your engagement with the subject.
Candidates who do not speak English as their first language are required to produce evidence that within the previous two years they have achieved an IELTS exam score of 6.5 with 6 in writing.
