The normal minimum qualification for entry to this course shall be at least an overall Third Class Honours in the Primary Degree, with at least Second Class Honours Grade II in the subject in which the candidate wishes to proceed to the MA Degree.
Applicants who have taken the BA Degree in another University, may be admitted to the MA if equivalently qualified. Such applicants may be granted permission to sit for the MA Qualifying Examination.
Candidates for the MA Degree are required to attend the prescribed MA course in the University or an approved course elsewhere and may be required to submit a Minor Thesis and/or essay(s) as part of this Examination. They may be permitted to take the written papers after three terms.
The MA Degree may be repeated only by special permission of the Academic Council.
Students may not be admitted to the HDipEd course while they are registered for Master's Degrees.
Students who do not have the required qualification to proceed to the Masters Degree, may with the permission of the Head of Department take a Master's Qualifying course (where offered) and which would equate with a BA Honours standard.
