Entry requirements

You will either:

  • possess a first degree (2:2 or above) in a subject relevant to postgraduate study of sociological and/or criminological systems
  • be graduates and have significant experience through work or voluntary engagement in the criminological or social sector
  • have significant relevant professional work or practice-based experience and satisfy the admissions tutor of their capability to study at this level; or be professionally qualified to work in the justice sector at a graduate stage or above.

If you do not have a relevant and good degree you will be considered by the Admissions Tutor. The tutor will consider all the information provided on the application form. If the application demonstrates substantial relevant experience in the criminological or social sector, the Admission Tutor will make an offer (if all other conditions in this section are met).

If your application provides some evidence of the potential to succeed, but does not clearly disclose that the entry criteria have been met, the Admissions Tutor may undertake an interview to clarify whether or not the student has the potential to succeed on the programme. This is an exercise of academic judgement, based on a holistic assessment of the individual and the demands of the programme. It provides an additional opportunity to assess an applicant who otherwise might not be admitted.

If English is not your first language, you will need to demonstrate language skills of IELTS 6.0 or above.

We welcome and encourage applications from people of all ages as long as they can be considered adequately prepared to succeed on the programme.

What students think about University of Derby

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”

    Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management

    Testimonial from Sumedha Rambukwella MSc Marketing Management, student at University of Derby

    Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
