The Entrepreneurship MSc programme is designed as a personal entrepreneurial journey where students develop key skills in modules during the first term and then develop more specialised skills through the choice of electives in the second term. Students also reinforce academic understanding of key areas such as accounting & finance and innovation management.

The final project is an opportunity for students to apply these skills through either a business plan project or consulting project. It may be developed on an original business idea or be developed in conjunction with an existing start-up business.

Entry requirements

Applicants should normally hold a Bachelors degree (a UK 2.1) or an equivalent qualification from a British or overseas university. If an applicant’s Bachelors degree is not in a subject related to the MSc, some relevant work experience would be an advantage.

Higher level professional qualifications may also be accepted. Each applicant is assessed on their own merit.

IELTS 6.5 overall, 6.0 in each component (or equivalent)

We offer intensive English language pre-sessional courses, designed to take you to the level of English ability and skill required for your studies here.
