Master Degree

Master’s degree programmes are primarily designed to prepare students for the practice of a profession (typically Master’s by coursework), or to master a subject area as a precursor to doctoral (PhD) training (typically Master’s by research).

Admission Requirements:

  • At least a second-class honours Bachelor degree, or its equivalent, recognised by the University Senate.
  • At least a credit or its equivalent in English Language GCE O-level or a valid IELTS score of 6.0 or a TOEFL minimum overall score of 550 or its equivalent. The IELTS or TOEFL is to be taken within two years of the start date of the programme. The English Language requirements may be waived where qualifying studies in Higher Education were in the medium of English Language. Where candidates completed their higher education more than 2 years prior to their current application they will need to show that they have continued to study or work.

Students who wish to be admitted as a mature candidate must satisfy the following minimum requirements:

  • Applicants must have at least 3 years of relevant working experience for admission to Master’s Degree programme; At least a credit 6 in English Language at GCE ‘O’ Level Examination or a grade ‘C’ in IGCSE English (as a Second Language) or a valid IELTS score of 6.0 or a TOEFL minimum overall score of 550;
  • Obtained a Bachelor’s degree or equivalent, recognised by the University Senate
  • Satisfactory interview and/or entry test

Candidates with other qualifications will be considered on a case by case basis.
