Academic entry qualification overview

We require a good honours degree (Lower Second or above), preferably in a science discipline. In lieu of the usual entry requirements, extensive professional experience, coupled with evidence of further training or qualifications, will be considered.

English language

International students must demonstrate English proficiency through a secure and approved testing system. We ask for English language proof from applicants from non-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 : minimum 6.5 overall with 6.0 in writing
  • TOEFL: 90 internet-based (with 22 in each component)

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 can then be considered for progression to the award-bearing levels of our course through re-application.

English language test validity

Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

International students should note that attendance in Manchester may be expected at various times during your course of study.
