If you are unsure whether your degree is suitable, you can email the programme convener to discuss.

International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.

Academic Background:

The programme is opened to students from various academic backgrounds and we encourage those who have been in employment for some time to consider applying.

  • overall score 6.5
  • no sub-test less than 6.0
  • or equivalent scores in another recognised qualification (see below)
  • Common equivalent English language qualifications

All stated English tests are acceptable for admission for both home/EU and international students for this programme:

For international students, the Home Office has confirmed that the University can choose to use these tests to make its own assessment of English language ability for visa applications to degree level programmes. The University is also able to accept an IELTS test (Academic module) from any of the 1000 IELTS test centres from around the world and we do not require a specific UKVI IELTS test for degree level programmes. We therefore still accept any of the English tests listed for admission to this programme.
