Applicants for any of our taught courses are normally graduates with an upper-second-class honours degree (or international equivalent) from a recognised university or college. Those able to demonstrate considerable work experience in the museum, gallery or heritage sectors are equally encouraged to apply.
Most students attending the taught courses have acquired some preliminary experience of work in museums, galleries or a heritage organization, usually as volunteers, and this is recommended, though not a prerequisite for acceptance onto our courses. For more information on how to gain voluntary experience at museums, galleries and heritage sites, please check our careers section.
The fastest way to apply is via the University's online application system.
Applicants whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 with 6.0 in writing, TOEFL 90 (Internet-based) or 577 (paper-based), or equivalent. The British Council organsises regular language tests in most countries. Newcastle University's INTO Centre provides a comprehensive suite of courses to enable students to improve their English skills, from foundation level to intensive pre-sessional English language courses.
Comprehensive information about fees and funding is available in the University's Funding & Finance pages.
