When can I apply for the 2014/15 programme?
Applications for 2014 entry will be open from 1 September 2013. You may apply when the appropriate application forms are available on the Board of Graduate Studies website.
What's the deadline for applications?
The closing date for applications is 15 February 2014. However, candidates are strongly advised to send in their applications before 31 December 2013.
What are the requirements for entry into the programme?
Applicants for the MPhil in Management must hold or to be about to achieve:
- A very high standard in a non-business/management degree programme of equivalent level to a UK Bachelor's degree with honours. In most countries this is a first degree but from some countries a Master's level degree may be required. The minimum standard required is a First Class Honours or equivalent, which translates in most countries into 'A' grades. (From the USA we expect a CGPA of 3.7/4.0, and from China we expect an average of 90%).
- A fluent command of the English language, documented, for those whose first language is not English, by an IELTS or TOEFL test, including the Test of Written English.
- Proficiency in mathematics and statistics (to the level of A-level/final year in high school). While the programme does not assume a high level of mathematical knowledge, students without a mathematical background are advised to prepare for the programme by studying in advance of the programme. The delivery of the programme is by lectures and workshops, and students who need extra support may benefit from arranging additional private tuition.
The MPhil in Management is a full-time programme and requires the completion of any current training or education programme or release from your current institution for the duration of your study.
Is there an application fee?
