Requisitos de admissão

Para estudantes internacionais

For a supervised PhD, we normally expect that applicants will hold at least a 2:1 or a Masters qualification from a UK university or a degree of comparable standing from a university outside the UK. We also require a recognised English language qualification prior to making an unconditional offer. For international applicants an IELTS score of 7.0 overall, or equivalent qualification, is required. If you require a Student Visa to undertake your research degree, you must apply for an academic place at least three months in advance of your proposed start date so you can obtain an offer in time to apply for your visa.

Os requisitos para o IELTS podem variar de acordo com o curso que você escolher.
