      Hi Colin, have a look at for more information about the REBE course. The entry criteria are:
      –An undergraduate degree with an appropriate technical background or equivalent experience
      –Evidence of English language ability e.g. TOEFL at 550 or an IELTS score of 6.0.

      Though we do not necessarily require you to have a degree to apply
      for the programme, you will need to be prepared to produce essays,
      reports and presentations at this level.

      Get in touch with our student support officers at to find out more information.
