Advice to applicants
This programme is taught during business hours and does not offer distance learning.
The part-time mode of attendance aims to concentrate contact time onto two days.
How your application is considered
Applications are mainly considered on the basis of an assessment of past and predicted academic achievements, the academic reference(s) and any other supplementary evidence that supports the application.
We therefore strongly recommend you include a personal statement (no more than 500 words) that demonstrates your understanding of the subject and your motivation for wanting to study the programme.
If your academic background is not directly related to the programme, you should supply an academic-standard writing sample on a subject related to the programme.
If English is not your native language, then you should provide an academic-standard writing sample in English directly related to the subject.
For the specific requirements of each programme in the School, please visit our Applying page.
Aptitude test requirement
Applicants must pass an aptitude test to secure an unconditional offer of a place.
There is no deadline for applications, and aptitude tests will be arranged on an ongoing basis.
However, as there are limited places, we reserve the right to close application for certain language(s) if all places of that/those language(s) have been taken up.
We will publish this information as soon as it happens, but we strongly recommend candidates to start their application at an early date.
Applicants will not be permitted to sit the aptitude test if they have not yet achieved the requisite results in the IELTS or equivalent examination, ie at least 7.0 overall and 7.0 in writing.
For applicants to the Chinese stream, there is an additional requirement for the speaking score, ie at least 7.0 in speaking for IELTS or 25 in speaking for TOEFL iBT.
