Entry requirements

Details
As a minimum, applicants should hold or be predicted to achieve the equivalent of the following UK qualifications: a first-class or strong upper second-class undergraduate degree with honours in a social science subject. It is also possible for students who have not specialised in a social science to read for the MSc in Refugee and Forced Migration Studies. Entrance to the course is very competitive and most successful applicants have a first-class degree or the equivalent. The admissions committee will occasionally consider a lower degree classification if the first qualification was taken some years ago, if you have gone on to further study since in which you have excelled, or if you have substantive work experience of relevance to the course. For applicants with a degree from the USA, the minimum GPA sought is 3.7 out of 4.0. However, most successful applicants have a GPA of 3.8 or above.
