Entry Requirements

Our distance learning programmes are specifically designed to allow people who have not had any higher education in these subject areas the opportunity to undertake a masters' level course, whilst remaining in full-time employment. In recognition of the value of work experience and the need to educate people currently in employment, traditional "academic" qualifications are not necessarily a requirement for acceptance onto our distance learning programmes

Forestry and Tropical Forestry Courses

Entry requirements are as follows:

  • An Upper Second class Honours degree in a relevant science or technology subject, e.g. Biological Sciences, Environmental Sciences, Agriculture, or Horticulture.

Students may also be enrolled if they have non-graduate qualifications, which the University has deemed to be of a satisfactory standard for the purpose of postgraduate admission.

Non-graduates, whose relative lack of formal qualifications is compensated for by his / her age and relevant work experience, may also be admitted provided the candidate is aged 25 or over and has held, for a minimum of 2 years, a position of responsibility of relevance to the Degree. 

Language requirements: IELTS 6.5 (with no element below 6.0) for international students.
