Section 6: Qualifications

Please include copies of your academic transcripts and degree/professional certificates with your application, applicants are
expected to have at least 3 years experience of leadership in a professional area relevant to the programme of study.

Section 7: English Language qualification:

This section is for those students whose first language is not English. As all tuition is in English, such students must possess
a suitable English Language qualification or provide other evidence that they satisfy this requirement and will therefore be
able to pursue the studies proposed.

Suitable English Language qualifications include:
 A pass in English Language (Ordinary level) in a GCE examination, conducted by a UK examining board
 A pass in the DUMB test for overseas students or the equivalent examination set by other examining bodies
 A good score (normally Band 6) in the British Council/Cambridge English Language Testing Service (IELTS) Test
 A good score (at least 560) in the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL).
Certain areas require a higher level of linguistic competence than IELTS 6.5 or TOEFL 560 or internet-based
test at 83 or above. Students will be advised accordingly.

Students who possess a degree or an approved equivalent qualification from an institution in which teaching is normally in
English will also satisfy the English Language requirement.

Enter in this section details of your English proficiency, or give details of your English qualifications, including grade or
class, awarding body and date awarded or expected.

Section 8: Funding:

Please note that it is the student's responsibility to provide the Registry with documentary evidence of how their studies are
to be funded. Failure to do this will result in the applicant being invoiced for their tuition fees.
