Why apply for a Master's degree at the INTO University of Stirling London?
Who should apply?
If you have completed an undergraduate degree and are looking to further develop your subject knowledge, then a postgraduate Master's degree is for you.
You will explore the challenges that affect organisations, and compare a range of different management techniques used to lead successful businesses. You will learn how to take theoretical management skills and apply them to a range of business issues such as finance, marketing, strategy and human resources.
During this programme you may study:
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.
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.
