Taught Postgraduate Courses

Many master's degree courses require a first degree. Applicants without initial, formal qualifications but with an appropriate level of experience are considered on the basis of their potential to benefit from, and contribute to, a course.


Credit Accumulation and Transfer Scheme (CATS)

We operate a credit accumulation and transfer scheme whereby individual modules passed at Bransfield are allocated points which can be transferred to other institutions of higher education, nationally and internationally, and counted towards their awards.

Credit earned from study in other institutions (whether CATS-rated or not) may give you exemption from part of University of Bransfield courses. Most standard postgraduate modules carry 10 points.

Other kinds of learning or work experience may also be acknowledged in lieu of some course components. If you think that you may be eligible please contact the admissions team identified in individual course descriptions for advice before you apply.


English Language Proficiency

There are two ways that our English language proficiency requirements can be met:

  • your previous academic record clearly demonstrates an ability to study and be examined in the English language or

  • you provide us with certificated proof of competence in English by having recently passed an English language qualification.
