You will need to meet the entry criteria to be considered for this course.
Undergraduate degree or equivalent*
Applicants should normally have, or be expected to achieve, a minimum second class degree (2:2) in a subject which offers an appropriate grounding in science, healthcare or genetics (or an equivalent overseas qualification).
*Must be completed, awarded and certified by 1 August 2016.
Alternative professional qualifications may be considered. Non-standard candidates may be required to submit supplementary details and/or attend interviews or selection days. Students attending interviews will be asked in advance if they have specific requirements so that reasonable adjustments can be made. Given that some of the candidates may have employment commitments, interviews may also be arranged and conducted via Skype.
If your native language is not English, you will need to provide evidence of your English language proficiency.
English language tests are valid for only two years, as English language ability changes from year to year. If you've completed a test which is now considered out of date, you may be required to complete another, though applicants are only permitted a maximum of two test attempts within a one year period.
