How your application is considered

When an application is received in the Manchester Enterprise Centre at the Alliance Manchester Business School, it is screened to ensure that the candidate meets the entry requirements and has submitted all the crucial documents.  If the candidate meets the minimum entry requirements, the application is passed to the appropriate academics within the School for consideration.  Prospective applicants will be interviewed and informed of the outcome following the interview stage.

Interview requirements

All applicants are interviewed by appropriate academic members of staff. This also provides an opportunity for the applicant to discuss their project proposal. For applicants in the U.K., they are invited to attend the interview in person at Alliance Manchester Business School.  For applicants based elsewhere, the interview will take place by telephone or web conference.  If you are applying for the MEnt in another School you may be interviewed in your School of application and at the Alliance Manchester Business School.


If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course.
