IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Applicants should have:
180 UCAS points.
PLUS at least three GCSEs at grade C or above (including English and mathematics) or equivalent qualifications.
Applications from mature students are welcome.
Students who have studied year 1 of one of the BITE suite degree programmes may transfer to year 2 of this degree.
Students with considerable success in a closely related HND or foundation degree may transfer into year 3 at the discretion of the programme leader in consultation with the admissions team.
If English is not your first language, you will need to provide proof of your fluency in English before you can begin a programme. The main systems for measuring this are IELTS with a minimum score of 6.0 for degree programmes or TOEFL with a minimum score of 550 for degree programmes. Recently the TOEFL computer-based test has been abolished to make way for the introduction of the Internet-based test, gradually eliminating the traditional paper-based method. Other qualifications may be satisfactory. We can tell you what is acceptable.
No work experience is required.
The Chartered Institute of Professional Management (CIPM) focuses on project management and has its own in-house career development structure. The degree set out here has been aligned with CIPM requirements from the outset and the development team will commence detailed accreditation alongside year 1 of the degree.
Together with the ISIC Association and British Council IELTS we offer you the chance to receive up to £10,000 to expand your horizon and study abroad. We want to ultimately encourage you to study abroad in order to experience and explore new countries, cultures and languages.
