The minimum requirement for the majority of our taught postgraduate programmes is an undergraduate Honours degree.

However for many of our Masters programmes you need to have at least an Upper Second Class (2:1) Honours degree, and some may specify the relevant subject they are looking for.

You can find the specific entry requirements for your chosen Masters programme on the course page. This includes details of any specific degree subjects or classification.

If you are applying for postgraduate research, you will normally need a Masters level qualification, and usually evidence of your research experience (e.g. through a Masters degree project).

EU and international applicants

If you are an EU or international applicant, you can find details of the equivalent qualifications accepted from your country on our Find Your Country page.

All courses at the University of Dundee are taught in English. If your first language is not English you must typically have an IELTS score of at least 6.5 overall (or equivalent) with a 6.0 in Writing and Speaking and a minimum of 5.5 in the other two components in order to be successful in your academic studies. Additionally, if you require a visa to study in the UK, then you must also meet the level of English required by UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI). The IELTS standard of English language required for each Masters course is shown on the individual course page.
