Exceptional Entry – Route 2 :
Any candidate for entry onto a Modular Master’s Degree who does not meet the requirements of either Normal Minimum Entry or Exceptional Entry – Route 1 must be considered via Exceptional Entry – Route 2.Exceptional Entry – Route 2 requires the relevant candidate details to be considered by the Regulations and Special Cases Committee. Nominations in regard to such candidates must be processed via the Academic Registrar and in sufficient time to be submitted to a convenient meeting of the Committee.Exceptional Entry – Route 2 candidates are those with a graduate or non-graduate qualification, which has not been recognized under normal minimum entry requirements or those candidates whose academic qualifications fall more than marginally short of the normal minimum entry requirements.

English Proficiency:
IELTS score of at least 6.0 or pass the DIMENSIONS’ Certificate in Academic English Level 5 or pass the English Proficiency Test at equivalent level conducted by DIMENSIONS or obtain a minimum grade of C for English Language at the GCE O-Level.
