Meeting the general entry requirements
The minimum requirement for entry to a Master's programme is a Bachelor's degree (hons) of at least 330 CATS /SCQF points
- Students holding only an ordinary, pass, condoned pass or compensated fail degree will not satisfy the entry requirements for a Master's programme.
Meeting the English requirement
You can meet the English requirement with your upper secondary studies with the GCSE/IGCSE, grade C/4.
If you’re documenting your English based on your upper secondary studies, you must provide documentation demonstrating you meet the requirement. Please submit your upper secondary documents as indicated for bachelor’s level studies.
You can also demonstrate that you meet the English language requirement through your university studies. If the language of instruction for your bachelor's programme was English, you can document this with your degree certificate and transcript. Other documentation is not required.
You can also fulfill the requirement with an internationally approved English test
