This is a competitive application process and preference will be given to applicants with grades above our minimum entry requirements.  Applicants for Commercial Project Management are expected to demonstrate that they have a strong academic background in management. 

If we make you an offer, you will have 8 weeks to accept it.  Offers that are not accepted within 8 weeks will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate in the next application stage.

We will aim to give you a decision on your application in the decision period for your application stage.  However, in some cases it may be necessary to roll your application forward to the next stage due to the competition for places.  We will contact you with an update on your application in the decision period if this is the case.

Please note: All places are subject to availability and some courses may close before the later stages.  We therefore recommend that you apply early in the admissions cycle.  Applications received after the final deadline of 1/5/19 may be considered at our discretion if places are still available.

Applicants who are made a conditional offer of a place must meet all the conditions of their offer by 31 July 2019.
