Portfolio requirements

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. To do this, you must demonstrate the ability to study at postgraduate level.

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

This 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 that are clearly underpinned by the academic skills required at level 6.
