Academic requirement

Applicants should normally have a relevant UK first or good upper second-class honours degree or overseas equivalent. In addition, students joining the MSt course will typically have relevant industry*or professional experience expected to be of a minimum of three years and, in some cases, a professional qualification in the discipline. They are therefore deemed to have achieved an acceptable level of knowledge and skills in order to meet entry requirements for the course.

Those applicants who do not meet the standard entry criteria, but have alternative qualifications or experience and have the potential to bring valuable assets to the programme, will be evaluated on an individual basis and may be  required to provide further materials in support of their application. 

*these include finance, investment, real estate and the more general built-environment professions

If English is not your first language, then you may be required to submit evidence that you meet the University's English language requirement.

Selection Process

Applications for our MSt programme are reviewed in batches. Candidates may be interviewed (via video call) and offered places after these reviews. Given the desire to get a diverse mix of skills and backgrounds, final decisions on most applications are not taken until after the closing date for all applications.

We advise that applications are made as early as possible, particularly non-standard applications which are likely to take longer to process.

Language requirement

  • IELTS Academic: Overall score of 7.5 (a minimum of 7.0 in each individual component)
  • TOEFL Internet: Overall score of 110 (a minimum of 25 in each individual component)
  • CAE: Grade A or B (with at least 193 in each individual element) plus a language centre assessment.
  • CPE: Grade A, B, or C (with at least 200 in each individual element).


Those applicants who are subject to a language requirement are strongly encouraged to submit their language results with their initial application as failure to do so may delay the processing of applications.

Potential applicants are also advised to consider carefully their capacity for balancing personal and professional commitments before submitting an application.
