Entry requirements

For students from United States

Each application is assessed on its own merits, however students will usually be expected to hold a master's degree. Previous exposure to research or thesis writing is highly desirable. Students need to have IELTS 6.5 overall with a minimum of 5.5 in each component.

For international students

Normally a university degree with a minimum of 2:1 standard from a UK university, or an equivalent academic qualification from a similar non-UK institution is required. The MSc Marketing is suitable for graduates of any discipline and assumes no prior knowledge of marketing, and is therefore less suitable for applicants with a first degree in marketing. Non-graduates with very extensive professional experience and/or other prior qualifications may also be considered. All candidates must meet our required level of English. IELTS: 6.5 (S6.5, W6.5, L6.0, R6.0). TOEFL: Minimum 88 overall with L 19 R 19 W 21 and S 23.

*There may be different IELTS requirements depending on your chosen course.
