Apply now

Places are limited to up to 17 participants per programme so please submit your application with full supporting documentation as soon as possible.

If you have any questions about these programmes please contact us by emailing

Entry Requirements

We normally expect our MA students to hold a degree to the standard of a 2:1 or higher in a natural or a social science, but we will accept applications from non-graduates in exceptional circumstances when relevant life and work experience can be demonstrated. As places are limited we will select candidates who we consider will make optimal use of the learning experience afforded by the programme, and who will actively co-create the foundations of a “new economy.” 

Language requirements

Students must be able to converse and write fluently in English. All applicants who do not hold a GCSE (Grade C or above) in English Language, must provide evidence of their English language ability in the form of a professional English qualification to the correct level.

The University entry standards for English language are detailed here.

Application and supporting documentation

To apply, fill out the Interactive PDF which can be downloaded from the How to Apply page. We require certain supporting documentation to be posted to us. Please check the list here.

The College will shortlist applicants for interview. You may be asked to come to the College for an interview, or to conduct a telephone or Skype interview if you are not geographically well placed to come to the College. Subject to interview, we will select our MA and PG Certificate students and offer places.

We will promptly acknowledge receipt of all applications by email. We will contact applicants to either arrange an interview or advise that their application will not be progressed further. We aim to do this within two to three weeks of receipt of an application.
