Academic Eligibility – What is Matriculation?
All postgraduate applicants, except those who are already graduates of Aberystwyth University, are required to matriculate before they may be admitted for postgraduate study. In order to matriculate applicants must:
a) have an undergraduate (minimum Bachelors level) or postgraduate degree from an institution recognised by Aberystwyth University Ecctis/UK ENIC. UK ENIC is the UK's National Information Centre for global qualifications and skills.
b) be able to demonstrate a minimum of 24 months full-time professional work experience in order to matriculate on that basis. matriculation on the basis of previous experience is available for Masters applicants, but not those seeking entry to PhD studies.
Please note that applicants, who may be able to matriculate with Aberystwyth University, may not necessarily hold a qualification that meets the specific academic entry requirements of their chosen course.
