Postgraduate study in the City of London providing the intellectual and practical skills required by retail professionals to succeed

Apply marketing and general management skills to the retail sector throughout your year of study at INTO University of Stirling London.

Why apply for a Master's degree at INTO University of Stirling London?

  • further develop your subject expertise and prepare for professional employment
  • study in the city of London, one of the most targeted markets for retailers
  • take part in a quality-assured university programme
  • campus-based programme with access to modern university facilities
  • access to the highest levels of personal care and support

Who should apply?

If you have completed an undergraduate degree and are looking to further develop your subject knowledge and analytical skills for application in the fast-paced financial world, then a postgraduate Master's degree is for you.

You will learn how to take both general management and marketing skills and apply them to a range of retail-specific issues, such as developments in the supply chain, the role of buying and merchandising in the retail sector, retail marketing and retail strategy. These are all set into the context of the change to digital marketing and the pressures that come from multi-channel retailing. Ultimately, retailing is still a people business and you will learn to understand and relate to your customers and to your staff in order to improve the business.

During this programme you may study:

Semester 1:

  • Accounting and Finance
  • Marketing Management
  • Retail Buying and Merchandising
  • Retail Fundamentals

Semester 2:

  • Supply Chain Management
  • People Management
  • Responsible Business in Society
  • Research Methods

Over the summer period (term 3) you are required to carry out a significant piece of academic work on your own initiative, using the skills and knowledge gained through the programme. This culminates in the submission of a written dissertation.


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.


Program requirements

A minimum of a second-class Honours degree (2.1 preferred) or equivalent. A relevant subject is preferred but students without a relevant degree who can show an interest in the subject will be considered.Applicants without these formal qualifications but with significant appropriate/relevant work/life experience are encouraged to apply. IELTS 6.0 (with a minimum of 5.5 in all subskills) or equivalent. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) 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. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
