    • a recognised professional qualification with relevant work experience.

    In cases where candidates are applying on the basis of work experience, they may be asked to complete a short written assignment and/or attend an interview as part of the applications process.

    Students shall also have satisfied the Programme Director that they have sufficient background knowledge to undertake the degree.

The emphasis of the Buckingham MA in War Studies and Contemporary Military History is on independent research.
