Entry requirements

Entry requirements vary from course to course so you need to check the individual course pages on our website for full details.

All programmes require you to hold an English language qualification. This is usually GCSE at Grade C (or above) or an equivalent accepted by York St John University. If you hold a GCSE equivalent qualification, please check with Admission that it is accepted before applying.

For international applicants, an IELTS qualification or another York St John University accepted English Language qualification is required. The IELTS grade requirement for each course is listed on the individual course page.

For some programmes, particular relevant previous experience is a prerequisite for an application to be successful. In some instances you may need to be working in a particular environment or have access to a specified client group.


Flexible Learning Framework

It is possible to study individual modules available on most of our postgraduate courses. Credit at the appropriate levels can be awarded on successful completion of assessment.

It may also be possible in certain circumstances to complete modules in order to demonstrate competence to enter an award bearing scheme if you do not possess the necessary entry qualifications. Modules completed in this way can then be counted towards a final award.
