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.

Our accredited Management MSc programme will prepare you for a wide range of careers in management. The Management (Human Resource Management) MSc is for those wishing to study HR within a managerial perspective and to undertake specialist studies in the management of talent, reward and performance.
