MSc History of Science, Technology and Medicine (including Medical Humanities award route) / Entry requirements

Year of entry: 2018

Academic entry qualification overview

We require an Upper Second-class honours degree or overseas equivalent in an appropriate discipline, which may include humanities or science subjects. You should provide transcripts or study plans indicating performance on the most relevant course content.

Applicants may also be accepted based on evidence of alternative study, research or professional experience that meets the University's central requirements.

This course is also available for intercalating medical students, both from the University of Manchester and other UK universities, upon completion of their third year. For St Andrews students, this includes the three-year course plus the following one or two years spent in Manchester. Intercalating medical students need to have passed all assessments at first attempt (if they are third year) or have no fails in third year if they are fourth year.

English language

For applicants whose first language is not English, we require a minimum IELTS score of 6.5 [or TOEFL (paper) 577, TOEFL (computer) 233, TOEFL (internet) 90]. The University of Manchester's TOEFL code is 0757.

If you are to attend a pre-sessional English course at our University Language Centre prior to the start of your Master's degree, a UKVI Approved Secure English Language Test is required for the purpose of your Tier 4 visa application.

English language test validity

Some English Language test results are only valid for two years. Your English Language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.
