Entry requirements

For direct access (Entry Route 1), you will need the following:

  • A second-class honours bachelor degree or equivalent from an acceptable institution.
  • Three years’ work experience in a managerial role (within the past five years).

We accept qualifications from around the world. If you have an appropriate professional award rather than a degree, we will consider this on an individual basis.

I meet one of these criteria, check to see if you can apply

If you meet only one of these requirements, you can apply to join the programme via Entry Route 2.

For your application to be considered, you must have one of the following:

  • A second-class honours bachelor’s degree in a relevant field or equivalent from an acceptable institution; or
  • Three years’ work experience in a managerial role (within the past five years).

Your application will be reviewed on an individual basis.

Under this route, you are strongly advised to complete our MBA Preparation Course (about 125 hours of study), and then take only one module (preferably core) in your first study session and one module in your second session. This will help you develop the necessary skills to complete the programme successfully.

If you have a previous qualification which is comparable in level, content and standard, you can apply for an exemption from part of the degree. This process is called ‘Recognition of Prior Learning’ (also known as ‘Credit Transfer’ or ‘Exemption’).
