Entry requirements

All applicants wishing to commence PhD studies with the iSchool are normally required to have a strong Master's degree, with an overall grade of 60% from a UK institution (or equivalent from an overseas institution), with a minimum of 60% in a research project/dissertation.

However, the department will consider exceptions on a case-by-case basis, should the prospective supervisor be willing to support it and should the candidate have additional relevant experience.
