DProf Doctorate in Professional Practice / Entry requirements

Year of entry: 2024

Academic entry qualification overview

We require applicants to hold a Masters degree in the relevant discipline with a Merit or above classification.

English language

For applicants whose first language is not English, or if you have not studied recently in the UK, you must provide evidence of how you meet the English Language requirement.

We mainly accept IELTS or TOEFL tests. Please note IELTS and TOEFL are only valid for two years.

We require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 overall or TOEFL (iBT) 90 or GCSE English grade C.

Each component of the English test should meet the minimum requirement of IELTS 6.0 or 22 in TOEFL (iBT).

If your IELTS or TOEFL expires before the start of your programme, you will need to take another official English test before we can issue you with a CAS for your visa application. This is a requirement of UKVI.
