Entry requirements

For students from United States

Entry to graduate diploma or taught Masters programmes usually requires either a UK upper second-class (2:1) or a lower second-class (2:2) undergraduate degree. For most courses, your major subject or content of your Bachelor's degree may also be considered. The comparable US qualifications are as follows: UK Upper Second-Class Honours (2:1); Bachelor degree with a cumulative GPA of at least 3.2. UK Lower Second-Class Honours (2:2); Bachelor degree with a cumulative GPA of at least 2.8. Please note the following key differences between graduate studies in the US and a taught Masters degree at Queen's: Master's degrees in the UK are normally one-year in duration. There is no GRE or GMAT required for entry to Queen's. A taught Master's refers to a program that combines academic instruction as well as the completion of a written dissertation. PhD degrees are three years in length and typically require you to have a Masters degree prior to applying and to prepare a research proposal. Minimum English Langauge requirements - 6.0 with minimum of 5.5 in all four elements of the test. Please refer the university website for details of the English Language requirements for entry to individual undergraduate and postgraduate degree programmes.

For international students

The minimum academic requirement for admission to a research degree programme is normally an Upper Second Class Honours degree from a UK or ROI HE provider, or an equivalent qualification acceptable to the University. Further information can be obtained by contacting the School. English Language Requirements: Evidence of an IELTS score of 6.0, with not less than 5.5 in any component, or an equivalent qualification acceptable to the University is required (taken within the last 2 years).
