Entry requirements

What Academic Background do you need?
You will need to have a 2.1 undergraduate degree or international equivalent in a relevant subject to the course. Professional experience in a humanitarian organisation can also be considered as an alternative, on the provision that you include evidence of such experience in your application, as well as evidence of your academic capability. This can be demonstrated through a written essay or personal statement illustrating that you can communicate clearly, are highly motivated, and have experience of prior learning. The final decision on admissions will be taken by the academic committee at the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) at the University of Manchester.

What if you don’t have an appropriate academic background?
The universities can consider significant relevant professional experience as a valid background, as long as you are able to prove that you have the necessary skills to follow an academic course at Master’s level. You can contact leapmsf@manchester.ac.uk for more details.
