Application and selection

How to apply

Apply through UCAS .

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.

Unit grade

The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will form the consideration of application.

A*

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

Predicted Grades

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

We are looking for evidence of your interest in this subject, and your commitment to studying it.

Interview requirements

We do not as a rule interview applicants. However, we reserve the right to interview candidates with non-standard backgrounds, eg. Mature students and students aged under 17.

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

International applicants will be assessed against the standard entry criteria of the course to which they are applying.

Deferrals

Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation. Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year only and 2 years at the maximum. Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date.

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

In most circumstances, we will expect candidates to have completed three A-levels in one sitting to demonstrate that they have the ability to successfully manage a high level and volume of study that will be expected of them once at university.

Re-applications

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. If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.

Transfers

We are unable to accept any transfers directly into the second or third year due to the assessment and study options followed by our first year students at Alliance Manchester Business School. All undergraduate degree programmes at Alliance Manchester Business School are full degree programmes with a September start and students must commence the programme from year one and meet our entry criteria.

If you are currently studying at The University of Manchester on an alternative course, and wish to transfer to first year study at Alliance Manchester Business School, please contact  ug.ambs@manchester.ac.uk  to check your eligibility.
