Entry qualifications for MRes



The normal requirements to enable an applicant to be considered for admission onto a Ƶ of Worcester MRes programme are as follows:


Applicants are normally expected to hold a First or Second Class Honours Degree or equivalent award in an appropriate discipline or have appropriate research or professional experience which has resulted in appropriate evidence of achievement.

An applicant holding qualifications other than those specified above shall be considered on their merits. Evidence of ability and background knowledge must be provided in relation to the proposed topic and research degree.

Any applicants whose first language is not English or who have not been educated wholly or mainly in the medium of English must reach a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 with a score of no less than 6.0 in any component (or equivalent in an approved test in English) or otherwise demonstrate that they have an adequate command of both written and spoken English before starting a programme. 

If an applicant does not meet this standard they may be required to attend a pre-sessional English course or any other requirement laid down by the Ƶ. Entry qualifications for international students are guided by the National Academic Recognition Information Centre’s (NARIC) advice on international qualifications.
