Entry Requirements

 

Academic entry requirements

The main criterion for admission to an MA programme in the Department of Politics is a 2.1 BA degree or international equivalent. However, exceptions are sometimes made for students with different backgrounds, in which case assessment is done through review of an academic written work sample. Additional information may be requested.

English language requirements

Applicants whose first language is not English may need to satisfy language requirements.

The Department of Politics has a higher minimum level than the University more generally because of the more difficult nature of the literature that Politics students must engage with. The departmental requirements are:

IELTS: 6.5 (with a minimum of 6.0 in each component)
