    Hey all,

    I guess I should elaborate as well that I'm an international student looking to get into an online Masters conversion course in Computer Science. I was wondering how strictly are entry requirements (or more specifically GPA requirements) enforced for post-graduate entry?

    I have a background in Neuroscience from the University of Pittsburgh in the USA. I also have two years of professional work experience in the same field and I'm able to get a great recommendation letter from my boss as well as another good one from another investigator. However, I also have just shy of the grade point average listed on the Universities' entry requirements (2.92 vs 3.0, 3.0 being a UK equivalent of an Honours I think?). Will I be immediately filtered out?

    The Universities I was looking at include:
    University of Birmingham
    University of Bristol
    Newcastle University
    University of Hertfordshire
