Year of entry: 2019

How to apply

This course is now closed to 2019 International applications.

For Home/EU applications, please contact mop.admissions@manchester.ac.uk

We will be accepting applications for 2020 entry from October 2019.

We have introduced 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.  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  Offers that are not accepted within 8 weeks will be withdrawn so that an offer can be made to another candidate in the next application stage.

Stage 1 : Application received by 29/10/18; decision communicated between 10/12/18 - 14/12/18

Stage 2 : Application received by 1/1/19; decision communicated between 11/2/19 - 15/2/19

Stage 3 : Application received by 4/3/19; decision communicated between 23/4/19 - 26/4/19

Stage 4 : Application received 1/5/19; decision communicated between 24/6/19 - 28/6/19

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.

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.
