Before applying you should satisfy yourself on six counts:
If you want to study a module on its own or are not at this stage concerned about completing sufficient modules to gain a postgraduate qualification, you can enrol as an Associate Student. There are no specific academic requirements (except for some EDA modules which rely on earlier modules) but you must provide sufficient information for the Admission Tutor to be satisfied that you have the appropriate background training or experience to be able to complete the module you have chosen successfully. The regulations for modular programmes limit Associate Students to studying one module at a time.
The minimum requirement for registration onto the Postgraduate programme is an honours degree in a relevant subject. Registration for a postgraduate award can also take experience into account as well as academic qualifications. See the two links below.
Enrolments for a Postgraduate qualification is on a staged basis: initially Postgraduate Certificate, then Postgraduate Diploma and finally Master of Science. This means that students undertake postgraduate study in three stages, enrolling first on the Postgraduate Certificate, then the Postgraduate Diploma, and finally on the Master of Science. There is no additional cost involved in making the transfer from stage to stage.
This gives more flexibility in that students can take an interim award but still have the option to continue if they wished.
