Entry requirements

BA / BSc Degree

Normal minimum entry requirements are a Lower Second / 2:2 class honours degree in a relevant subject e.g. business and management, graphic design, psychology or sociology.

APEL

Candidates who do not possess a first degree or who have been awarded a third class honours or pass degree may be considered for the programme on the basis of previous work experience or relevant training.  Candidates will be interviewed by the programme manager, and if appropriate may be required to complete an assessment to demonstrate they have the necessary knowledge and skills to allow entry. 

Candidates will need to complete all modules on the programme, and therefore APEL will not be considered for any modules on the MSc Brand and Design Management degree itself.

Language Requirements

Candidates will be required to be competent in English.  Candidates whose first language is not English require IELTS 6.5 (with a minimum of 5.5 in each element) or equivalent in a secure English language test.  If the candidate’s English language does not meet the above standard, they will be given the opportunity to complete one of the University’s pre-sessional English language courses.

An upper second class honours degree in any discipline, or an equivalent professional qualification. Other qualifications accompanied by substantial experience in an appropriate field may also be considered. Non standard applications will be considered on a case by case basis. 

If English is not your first language, you will need to have achieved at least 6.5 in IELTS or equivalent exams.
