Policies and guidelines

In assessing applicants for entry to our programmes – both Taught and Research – you are evaluated on the basis of your academic ability, achievement, ability and potential, regardless of age, religious belief, ethnicity, gender, marital or family status, sexual orientation or physical ability.

Admission to the programmes requires that you have the potential to fulfil the requirements of the programme.

If your application is not successful, you cannot be reconsidered for entry within the same cycle but you may re-apply the following year without prejudice to the new application.
