Entry requirements

Entry requirements vary among our postgraduate courses, but most courses have the following minimum standard entry requirements. Any course-specific requirements are described on our course pages.

Note that even if you meet our minimum entry requirements, we cannot guarantee you a place on the course.

Our standard postgraduate entry requirements for most courses are:

  • a good honours degree from a recognised university or qualification or experience deemed to be equivalent
  • English Language competency requirements vary among courses, but as a minimum, you will need the equivalent to an IELTS* score of at least 6.5 overall (and minimum 5.5 in each component)

* If you have not already completed one, you can complete an IELTS test at the University.

If you have any questions, get in touch with your admissions office.
