Applying for Masters in Management

The deadline to apply for September 2014 entry is 30 June 2014, 5pm. Applications can be made using an online application form from.

We are not able to advise applicants on whether they would be suitable for the course until we have received a completed application. We cannot consider applicants with a degree result lower than an upper second-class degree.

Entry Requirements

We look for students with drive, talent, intelligence and vigour.

  • Academic. A minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard, in any subject. Applicants who have not received their final undergraduate degree must be able to prove their current grade average is a 2:1 or equivalent.
  • Career Aspirations. A personal statement outlining (1) their motivation for studying management and (2) future career aspirations.
  • Work Experience. Applicants who can show that they have actively taken steps to meet their career goals though activities such as work experience/internships/volunteering are at an advantage. Details should be included on the application form and a CV should also be attached.
  • Language skills. Applicants whose first language is not English must be able to provide evidence that their spoken and written command of the English language is adequate. UCL's preferred English language qualification is the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). A 'Good Level' is required for MSc in Management: i.e. an overall grade of 7.0, with a minimum of 6.0 in each of the subtests.  More information about the English language criteria can be found here.
  • Applications process. Qualifications are assessed only once an application has been submitted. The equivalency of overseas qualifications cannot be assessed unless a full application with all supporting documentation such as degree transcripts has already been submitted to UCL.

A GMAT or GRE test result is not required for entry to MSc Management.


If an applicant meets the entry requirements and is deemed suitable for the course, he or she is invited for an online interview via WePow. Applicants from the UK may also be invited for an interview at UCL.
