How to apply
Advice to applicants
Mitigating circumstances may be personal or family illness, other family circumstances, change of teachers during a course, problems with school facilities or an unusual curriculum followed by your school or college. We recommend that information on mitigating circumstances that have affected or are likely to affect your academic performance will be included in the referee's report. We cannot usually take into account information that is supplied after an adverse decision has been made on an application by the admitting School. If you encounter mitigating circumstances after you have submitted your application, please inform the admissions staff in the School to which you applied as soon as possible.
Where mitigating circumstances have already been taken into account, for example by the relevant exam board, we will not be able to make further allowances.
The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will form the consideration of application.
Alliance Manchester Business School does not issue offers on the Grade A* as standard practice. It may however be taken into account at the point of confirmation to inform decisions on candidates who have narrowly missed the terms of their offer.
A-levels in a native or heritage language
We consider applications holistically taking into consideration the overall educational environment. Where native langue A levels are offered we will consider them in line with other subjects that the student has undertaken.
How your application is considered
Strong examination results are the main factor in admitting students to our courses. We consider other information to ensure we admit students with the most outstanding potential. This is assessed within a structured framework and includes prior and predicted grades. Your referee should give realistic grade predications for all qualifications that you are currently studying at the top of their reference. If you attend a non-UK school or college that does not provide predicted grades your referee should explain this policy within their reference. Further guidance for referees is provided by UCAS (www.ucas.com).
Skills, knowledge, abilities, interests
Returning to education
The University encourages applications from applicants returning to education after employment or other experience. Your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. However, we recognise that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable you to demonstrate fully your suitability for your chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions staff will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give you equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence to meet entry criteria fully, you will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
Overseas (non-UK) applicants
Alliance MBS is a truly global business school welcoming undergraduate students from over 68 countries. Please see our international entry requirements for details of country-specific entry requirements.
Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications
We consider applicants who are resitting their qualifications. Whilst we do not increase our entry requirements for the first resit this would be considered for subsequent resits.
Policy for applicants who take their examinations in more than one sitting
Transfers from students outside The University of Manchester to a course in our school are not considered without a full application through UCAS. You may be asked to provide clarification of the reasons for a transfer as well as a transcript of grades from your current institution. Requests for transfers from students already attending The University of Manchester will be considered on a case by case basis with regards to our entry requirements for academic level and English language ability. Where a request to transfer comes from an internal candidate we will normally consider you for year one entry and your current academic transcript of grades will be considered alongside your request to transfer. All requests to transfer to Alliance Manchester Business School should be sent in writing to the Undergraduate Admissions Team by email initially.
