    The heritage industry is a major and growing contributor to the global economy, employing increased numbers of skilled heritage managers. This degree offers a tailor made curriculum to develop the knowledge base and skills required from both the disciplines of Business and Archaeology to allow effective management of the world’s heritage.

    As a student on this programme you will be guided through modules to develop your understanding of the economic and legal principals within which heritage management operates across the globe, from Museum displays to site presentations and how heritage shapes national identities. This will be matched by education in theory and practice of assessing, preserving, presenting and mitigating the impact of development on our shared heritage.

    Your business skills will be developed in finance, marketing, project and risk management to provide a broad base suited to working in both the public (government) and private sectors. Graduates from this programme will be suited to work in a wide range of business and management roles in the heritage, tourism and construction sectors.

    The heritage industry is a major and growing contributor to the global economy, employing increased numbers of skilled heritage managers. This degree offers a tailor made curriculum to develop the knowledge base and skills required from both the disciplines of Business and Archaeology to allow effective management of the world’s heritage.

    As a student on this programme you will be guided through modules to develop your understanding of the economic and legal principals within which heritage management operates across the globe; from Museum displays, site presentation and how heritage shapes national identities. This will be matched by education in theory and practice of assessing, preserving, presenting and mitigating the impact of development on our shared heritage.

    Your business skills will be developed in finance, marketing, project and risk management to provide a broad base suited to working in both the public (government) and private sectors. All students are able to take one additional module from elsewhere in the University (including languages) to suite their individual interests and career development.

    Graduates from this programme will be suited to work in a wide range of business and management roles in the heritage, tourism and construction sectors.

    Typical course content

    The key learning outcomes are covered by the core modules. Thus any student passing the taught component of the module will graduate with the postgraduate diploma with a relevant set of skills and those progressing through the dissertation will add additional depth and research skills required for the MSc level qualification. Two optional modules are permitted to allow students to pursue particular interests and shape their career development.


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
