Entry requirements

Students must attain a 2:2 (or overseas equivalent) in an undergraduate degree. Students will typically have a background in Business, Finance, Economics, Mathematics or Computer Science. We would also be willing to consider those with other backgrounds and work experience in the sector.

We consider all applications on their merits and will look at each individual case before making an offer so students who fall slightly short of the entry criteria should still apply to the School of Management.

Non-native English speakers must achieve an IELTS score of 6.0 overall with no component less than 5.5. A list of equivalent tests is provided here. If you have studied an undergraduate degree taught through the medium of English, you may be exempt from this requirement – click here for further information.

For students who fall short of only the English language requirement, we offer a range of  Pre-Master's training programmes  that you may take before starting your Master's qualification.

For students who fall significantly short of the general entry requirement, we offer a  Pre-Master's programme  via The College, Swansea University that will allow you entry on to our postgraduate programmes.
