1. Entry Requirements

There are basic entry requirements descriptions available for Psychiatric Medicine and Applied Mental Health Studies.  Note that the type of documentation to prove you meet entry requirements varies depending on your chosen course and type of study. These are detailed in the process description for online admission.

All students need to provide Proof of Identity which includes a Certified copy of a Photo ID (Drivers Licence or Passport) and a Passport style photograph.

Applicants may request that their previous learning and experience be assessed for advanced standing towards a postgraduate award. If you wish to apply, please complete the Advanced Standing Application Form as you will need to upload it.
