You will need to supply details of the courses you studied, your grades (showing scores), your syllabus and a grading guide. Our course leaders look for a close match between first degree subjects and our own DMU qualifications.

 

Some courses have additional entry criteria such as a portfolio, an audition, or require a student to have a particular qualification.
