Application Process 

Entry requirements for a research degree are usually a degree from an approved UK or overseas university. Some Schools require a 2.1 Honours degree or above; others simply a good Honours degree in an appropriate subject. Enrolment for Research Degree students normally takes place in September, January and April (subject to the approval of the School).
