Entry requirements

Applicants to this course should already have achieved the Chartered Institute of Marketing (CIM) Postgraduate Professional Diploma.

In addition, full consideration is given to applications for Accredited Prior Learning (APL). This is particularly relevant for students who have partially completed a relevant Masters programme in another country or may have significant, relevant work experience, but no first degree.

The student's prior learning claim is mapped against the learning outcomes of the course. The decision on a claim rests with the Admissions Tutor or Course Leader, subject to confirmation by the Dean of School, Head of Department, or a nominee and ratification by the APL Board. Students must enrol on the course before a claim for APL can be considered.
