Entry Requirements

LKH seeks to be an inclusive community, and to take into consideration students’ life experiences and academic potential, not only their previous academic qualifications. Each of our academic programmes has a set of standard entry requirements, but we also encourage applications from those who do not meet these. We recognise that standard procedures for assessing applications may not always give the full picture. If you would like to apply for one of our courses but do not meet the standard entry requirements and would like more guidance, please feel free to contact the Registrar for an informal conversation about your circumstances.

For full details, follow the appropriate links below:

BA and Undergraduate Programme Entry Requirements

Standard Entry Requirements
The standard entry requirement for our undergraduate programme is a minimum of two A-level passes, and three passes at C or above in the General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE), or equivalent qualifications.

Non-Standard Entry Requirements
If you do not meet the standard entry requirements, we will consider your application on an individual basis. You will normally be required to:

participate in a formal interview,
provide satisfactory evidence of your ability to engage in study at degree level,
satisfactorily complete a formal piece of written work, demonstrating an ability to write coherently and reflectively.
In some instances it may feel more appropriate for someone to study towards the Certificate or Diploma qualification in the first instance, with the opportunity to progress to the full degree if they achieve appropriate marks.

MA, PG Dip and PG Cert Postgraduate Taught Programme Entry Requirements

Standard Entry Requirements
The standard entry requirement for our postgraduate taught programme is a relevant undergraduate degree at a minimum level of 2.2 (lower second class) Honours, or equivalent.

Non-Standard Entry Requirements
If you do not meet the standard entry requirements, we will consider your application on an individual basis. You will normally be required to:

participate in a formal interview,
provide evidence of theological reading and engagement at an appropriate level,
demonstrate the ability to develop a critical argument,
provide a piece of written work at an appropriate academic level.
If you do not have the required background in theological study but meet the non-standard assessment criteria, you may be admitted to the postgraduate diploma in the first instance, with the possibility of progression to the MA dependent on the marks you achieve in your taught modules, or you may be required to complete some additional study prior to admission to the programme.

Research Programme Entry Requirements

Applicants for the research programme (both MPhil and PhD) are expected to have a Merit or equivalent at Masters level in a relevant subject (normally Theology). The qualification should include a Research Methods component and a dissertation.

Borderline candidates (with an overall Masters result at no lower than 58%) will be considered if (a) their proposal is strong, showing good methodological and critical awareness and (b) they complete two further MA units at Merit level or above, including a Research Methods unit, or present a substantial piece of academic writing at Merit standard.

Non-standard entrants who apply on the basis of Prior Experiential Learning will be considered. They will normally be required to complete 60 credits of MA units, including a Research Methods unit and substantive piece of writing, at Merit level, before being admitted to doctoral study.

If you are an international applicant requiring a Tier 4 visa, please see our International Students page for further information about entry requirements.
