Entry criteria

Successful applicants must hold:

  • A Bachelor’s degree (or international equivalent) from a UK or recognised overseas University; membership of an approved chartered institute; or a Diploma in Management Studies.
  • 3 years’ professional experience is also required to ensure our high standard of classroom experience.
  • Participants must also be able to evidence, leadership potential, self-motivation and commitment to learning and academic ability.

The requirement for a degree or similar qualification is occasionally waived for those who possess significantly higher levels of experience and achievements – in which case a test and interview will normally be required.

English language requirements

  • Minimum IELTS result of 6.5 overall average with at least 6.0 in each component (Listening, Reading, Writing, Speaking).

Applicants without the required IELTS result may be made a conditional offer providing that they submit evidence of an English language certificate that meets the University's standard requirement at a later date.
