  • Professional work experience.

In considering whether to admit an applicant the Selection Committee will also consider:

  • The quality of the degree(s) that the applicant has previously been awarded
  • The standing and reputation of the university or universities that awarded the degree(s)
  • The duration and type of work experience the applicant has obtained
  • The relevance of the applicant’s work experience to the course for which they have applied.

The Selection Committee may seek further information to clarify any aspect of an application in accordance with the Student Application and Selection Procedure.
