“I’m not necessarily looking for someone who’s got a ‘double first from Oxford’. What’s more important is a strong interest and a professional background from practice – as well as qualifications from previous study. It’s about people who can contribute to the programme and not be ‘passive’ learners,” (Dr Philip Whiteman, Director, Online Masters of Public Administration, University of Birmingham).
For international students, standard English language requirements apply. You must have an IELTS 6.5 with no less than 6.0 in any band.
