Applications are welcome from candidates who already hold a first degree. Candidates should have a minimum of an upper second class degree in an appropriate science subject and will be considered for entry to the newly introduced four-year graduate entry programme.

Candidates with a non-science degree will still be considered for the five-year course but should consult the Admissions Office before applying.
