Academic entry qualification overview
We require a minimum of an Upper Second honours degree or the overseas equivalent . Significant relevant research or professional experience may be considered in place of an academic qualification lower than an Upper Second.
If you fail to meet the required entry criteria, applications will be considered on an individual basis, but you may be required to enrol initially on another route, such as a PGCert or PGDip. You may be allowed to progress to the full MRes course if you pass the course at the required master's level.
This course is also available for intercalating medical students, both from The University of Manchester and other UK universities, upon successful completion of their third year.
I nternational students must demonstrate English proficiency through a secure and approved testing system. We ask for English language proof from applicants from countries that are not majority English-speaking countries (a list of majority English-speaking countries, are defined by the UK Home Office ).
Specifically, we require a minimum of:
- IELTS [LB3] : minimum 6.5 overall with 6.0 in writing
- TOEFL: 90 internet-based (with 22 in each component)
See further information about requirements for your country .
If the language of instruction of your first degree was English, but you obtained the degree from a university of a non-majority English-speaking country, the English language requirement may be waived for applicants on our Personal Professional Development CPD programme only, provided written evidence is submitted.
The Personal Professional Development CPD programme is not award-bearing and allows you to complete up to three units from the MPH syllabus. After successfully completing this level of the course, students could then be considered for progression to the award-bearing levels of our course, through re-application.
