Entry requirements

The University welcomes applications from all potential students, and offers are made following detailed consideration of each individual application.

The decision to offer a place is based on our assessment of a candidate’s potential to benefit from their studies and of their ability to succeed on this particular programme. Whilst you will normally hold a first degree or professional qualification we will consider your application if you do not possess such a qualification but have appropriate health and social care work experience.

Work experience of at least one year in a health and social care-related environment - this experience must be detailed in the application. Applicants are required to provide information, as part of their application, to detail how this experience has prepared them for study on this programme. Stronger applications will be those that include some thought as to how the programme will help the applicant reach their specific career goals.

Additional entry requirements

Recognised English qualification, for example, GCSE English grade A-C.

English language requirements

IELTS 6.0 with 5.5 in each sub-test.

If you do not meet the IELTS requirement, you can take a University of Bradford pre-sessional English course. See the Language Centre for more details. For further information on English Language requirements please see the dedicated international entry requirements page.

Learning and assessment
