Qualifications required


Often a prospective student does not believe they have adequate qualifications to be accepted. We assure you that all qualifications will be carefully considered before an official decision is taken, and it is important to include all relevant information in your application, including work experience.

Qualifications for different courses vary considerably. Entry requirements for each specific course can be found on the respective course page on this website under the Departments section. Further information can be found at here.



Finding the Right Course


Choosing a degree to dedicate three or more years of your life to, can be a daunting task. It is a decision which affects many aspects of your life and it is important to remember that education is an investment in yourself. Although this personal investment aspect of education may not be so apparent at primary level, this is exactly what tertiary level education is for. Keep in mind your strengths, goals for your future career, as well as the skills you want to develop.

Choosing a degree involves thinking of the long-term outcomes, and the right degree will allow you to be more critical and analytical, as well as develop your problem- solving skills. Such attributes make you more employable, and in turn you will become more fulfilled and accomplished.

The University of London International Programmes has put together an article outlining aspects one can take into consideration before settling into a career path. http://careers.theguardian.com/moving-career-up-gear-expert-top-tips
