Entry qualifications Each application is considered on its own merits and receives full consideration from academic staff. For all postgraduate programmes, Queen Mary welcomes applications from candidates who wish to be considered, at least in part, on the basis of relevant experience gained either in the workplace or similar environment. It is very hard to generalise about entrance requirements across the many subjects and awards we offer but the following guidance may prove useful.
Research Degrees The usual entrance requirement for entry to a research degree is a good second class honours degree or a master's degree from an UK university, a recognised equivalent from an accredited overseas institution or an equivalent professional qualification. Taught Master's Degrees The usual entrance requirement for entry to a taught Master's degree is a good second class honours degree from a UK university (except clinical medical or dental), a recognised equivalent from an accredited overseas institution or an equivalent professional qualification. Taught Postgraduate Diploma Course The usual entrance requirement for entry to a postgraduate diploma is either a first degree of approved standard, or evidence of professional or educational attainment, which is assessed by the academic selector as being of an acceptable entry standard.
