De Montfort University is committed to providing a high quality learning environment, characterised by inclusiveness and diversity. We welcome applications from people with special needs or disabilities and can provide learner support where appropriate. Applicants are encouraged to discuss this, in confidence, at the application stage.

Entry requirements

Students are selected by written application and references initially. Applicants should normally have a good degree (second class and above) in a relevant subject or five years work experience in an appropriate field. Applicants from outside the UK must possess an equivalent qualification from an overseas institution. Students are selected by applications and references initially and then by interview if necessary. The programme is taught in English. Overseas applicants for whom English is not a first language will normally require an IELTS score of 6.5 or a TOEFL score of 600/250 (see also International students). Applicants without the normal entry requirements but who can demonstrate substantial work experience in an appropriate area can be considered for entry to the programme.
