Candidates should normally possess either a degree/Honours degree or degree-equivalent qualification in a relevant degree subject, awarded by a UK University or recognised Overseas Institution or qualifications of an approved Professional Body or Institution. Candidates with relevant industrial, commercial or professional experience at a level sufficient to justify exemption from the normal requirements may be considered.
In certain circumstances, students with ordinary degrees but with extensive appropriate work-experience within the sector can be admitted to a particular course at the discretion of the Course Leader and the Postgraduate Management Team.
All international students, for whom English is not their first language, must provide evidence of linguistic ability, by gaining IELTS 6.5 prior to receiving an unconditional offer of a place on the course.
