The Course shall be open to applicants in possession of one of the following qualifications:
(a) the degree of Bachelor of Science (Honours) obtained with at least Second Class (Honours) from the Faculty of Health Sciences in an area of study which should be directly related to the area in which the research is to be carried out or
(b) a Bachelor's degree obtained with at least a Second Class (Honours) in a discipline deemed by the Board as being closely related to the area of study in which the research is to be carried out or
(c) a qualification deemed by Senate, on the recommendation of the Board, to be equivalent to the qualifications listed in (a) and (b) above.
During the first year of the Course, students may be required to undergo an occupational health assessment so as to ascertain that they are fit for work which may bring them in contact with the clinical environment. Students who do not fulfil this requirement may be barred from progressing with their studies. Failure to disclose information about a physical or mental health problem that could affect patient safety is considered to be a serious breach of the University Suitability to Practise Regulations.
Further information, including a schedule of interviews for applicants for courses with a limited number of students and for 'adult learners/mature applicants' (in the case of undergraduate courses), as well as important information on the occupational health protocol, to be submitted by the 30 November 2020, can be accessed here. Prospective students are encouraged to go through these documents carefully as early as possible.
The admission requirements are applicable for courses commencing in October 2020.
For more detailed information pertaining to admission and progression requirements please refer to the bye-laws for the course available here.
