Admission to a taught programme is normally on the basis of a good first degree with Honours. Final overall grade examples include 2.1 (UK), 2.2 or B+ (Europe), 3.6 GPA (USA), 85% (China), 70% (India). We do not require the GMAT.


The majority of taught Masters programmes will start in September of each year with the exception of some distance learning programmes.


Most programmes do not have a closing date, though an early application would be advisable. This is to allow sufficient time to process our decision and, importantly, to give you time to obtain visas, apply for scholarships and organise travel arrangements, if needed.
