UK applicants who do not hold a first degree (or equivalent qualification) may be admitted on the basis of a health/social work professional qualification. You must demonstrate the ability to study at postgraduate level.

A standardised procedure for assessing this ability via the submission of a portfolio will be implemented where you are required to submit a portfolio of evidence of equivalence to the achievement of QAA FHEQ level 6 outcomes.

The portfolio will be reviewed by staff from the course team. Such evidence may include a documented track record of innovative practice, leadership, service development, research projects and publications, which are clearly underpinned by the academic skills required at level 6.
