When assessing the academic record we will take into account the grades achieved, academic references and the standing of the institution. Those not meeting the academic entry requirements will be expected to show a minimum of three years post study experience and have a potentially viable business or social impact start-up idea. Non-standard applicants who have significant relevant professional experience may be considered on an individual basis by the Course Director. You'll also need to meet the required standard of English.
