Entry requirements

The entry requirements listed here are our typical offer for this course if you wish to begin studying with us in 2018. They should be used as a general guide.

We operate a flexible admissions policy – this means that you could receive a lower conditional offer than the typical offer, informed by our assessment of your complementary non-academic achievements and experiences. For courses that require interview or portfolio review, this may also be considered in the level of any conditional offer that follows if your application is successful.

International students who need help meeting the academic entry requirements should contact our International College.

Applicants who hold an HND or Foundation degree equivalent can take our nine-month Business BSc top-up degree.

Course content

Our accredited Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc provides you with the specialist knowledge and skills that you need for a career in logistics and supply chain management.

Alongside traditional lectures you will gain practical experience from projects, case studies and talks from industry experts. You will learn about international logistics, operations management, analytics for logistics, enterprise systems, e-procurement and strategic purchasing. You will also learn practical business skills in financial analysis, problem solving, cross-cultural teamwork and consultancy.

With our emphasis on practical learning, in your third term you will have opportunities to either visit our industry partners to learn about their activities and challenges, or to apply your new knowledge acting as a consultant. As part of this programme you also have the opportunity to complete a six-month paid work placement.

The University of Brighton is also a member of the SAP University Alliances Programme – you will gain experience of using SAP software, one of the world's most widely used enterprise planning systems.

This course is accredited by the Chartered Institute of Procurement and Supply (CIPS) and the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT).
