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:

Undergraduate Programme Applications (Foundation, Certificate, Diploma and BA)

Standard Entry Requirements

The standard entry requirement for our undergraduate programme range from a minimum of one A-level pass for the Foundation Award to three A-levels for the BA.

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.

Postgraduate Taught Programme Applications (PGCert, PGDip, MA)

Standard Entry Requirements

The standard entry requirement for our postgraduate taught programmes is a relevant undergraduate degree at a minimum level of 2.1 (upper 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 certificate 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

The entry criteria for the research programme (both MPhil and PhD) are as follows:  

  • A Bachelors (Honours) degree at 2:1 level or above (or its international equivalent) in a related subject; and
  • A UK Master’s degree with an overall average of 65% or higher, with a minimum of 65% in the dissertation and with no mark below 55% (or its international equivalent) in Religions and Theology or a related subject.
  • Any strong, relevant work experience will be considered on a case by case basis.

 

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