MSc Management of Projects / Application and selection

Year of entry: 2020

How to apply

Applications to this course are considered through a staged admissions process with selection deadlines throughout the year that will benefit applicants. 

This is a competitive application process and preference will be given to applicants with grades above our minimum entry requirements.  Preference may also be shown for applicants who have already graduated and/or already meet the English language entry requirement.  Applicants for Management of Projects are expected to demonstrate that they have a strong academic background in management. 

If we make you an offer, you will have 6 weeks to accept it.  Offers that are not accepted within 6 weeks will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate in the next application stage.

Stage 1 : Application received by 27/10/19; decision communicated between 25/11/19 - 29/11/19

Stage 2 : Application received by 1/12/19; decision communicated between 20/01/20 - 24/01/20

Stage 3 : Application received by 12/01/20; decision communicated between 16/03/20 - 20/03/20

Stage 4 : Application received by 15/03/20; decision communicated between 11/05/20 - 15/05/20

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 15/03/2020 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 2020.

Advice to applicants

The following documents must be submitted with the application:

  • Latest transcripts of study showing all modules completed including credit weighting and grades achieved
  • If you have not yet graduated, a list of the modules that you will be completing in the final year of your degree together with their credit weighting
  • An official document from your university verifying your current weighted average mark if this information is not included in your transcript of study. Please note : this must be recorded as a percentage, not as a GPA grade, and must give the weighted average mark, not an arithmetic average mark
  • Two references that are dated, on official letterhead paper, and signed by the referee.

You must submit all these supporting documents with your application; if any of the above information is missing, this will cause a delay and may mean that your application will be rolled forward to the next stage or withdrawn.
