Applicants for any of the MSc courses should accompany their application with a supporting personal statement in which they give their reasons for wanting to study the subject taught in the specific degree course for which they are applying. This statement should make it clear why the subject is important to them, what experience or education they are bringing to the course, what they hope to get from the course, and what ultimate career plans they may have. This statement, which should not exceed 700 words, will be used by the admissions team in making a decision about whether to accept the application. There is no requirement for a portfolio, but if applicants choose to submit a printed portfolio of no more than 8 pages (not a digital one) it will be reviewed.
Applicants should follow the links to the more detailed pages on Programme Pathways to make sure that they understand the options available to them, particularly if they are applying for part-time attendance. However, applicants applying for part-time study will not be asked to decide which of the part-time pathway options they want to take until they enrol with the University after their application has been accepted.
Please note that there are specific technical requirements for entry to the distance learning version of the Environmental Design of Buildings programme.
