More About IELTS

Requirements

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.

Language skills

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.

Work Experience

No work experience is required.

Accreditation

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.
