    Applicants are normally expected to have a first or second class, upper division degree, and an MA, and/or significant experience.

    Mature students

    Age is no barrier to learning and we welcome all applications from suitably qualified students.

    International students

    We are happy to consider all international applications and if you are an international student, you may find it useful to visit our international pages for details of entry requirements from your home country.

    The University is a UKVI Student Sponsor.

    English levels

    If English is not your first language, please check our postgraduate English language requirements. If your English levels don’t meet our minimum requirements, you may be interested in applying for our Pre-sessional English Language Foundation Programmes.

    Selection process

    Wherever possible, you will be invited to the University to meet the Admissions Tutor for an informal interview and to have a tour of our campus. If you are an international applicant, it may not be possible for you to visit in person, so if the Admissions Tutor has any queries about your application you may be conducted by Microsoft Teams, email or phone.

    Research Proposals

    If you have a research proposal which you would like to discuss further, please contact Dr Peter Sloane (peter.sloane@buckingham.ac.uk).
