    Our MA in Arts Management covers the core skills required to manage arts and cultural organisations in the 21st century. It will enable you to gain a broad understanding of the institutions and major players that influence the cultural, political, social, and economic environment in which arts and cultural organisations operate. It will also provide you with a toolkit of key business skills, including marketing, business planning, finance, IT and fundraising. The work experience element of our course will enable you to apply your business skills in a practical context.

    Assessment
    Most modules are assessed by assignment, but there may also be group and individual presentations and project work. If you work in an arts organisation, or have secured a placement, you will be encouraged to illustrate your assignments with reference to the real situations, problems and issues facing your employers or host organisation.

    The learning approach is to develop students' knowledge through in-depth, theoretical and practical work in lectures and seminars, in order to enable students to adapt broad theoretical models into their professional lives.

    Learning is carried out via a wide variety of modes, there are two cohorts annually attending in either full-time or part-time mode (part-time students are largely practising arts managers), through studying a range of specifically tailored modules. There are opportunities for both full-time and part-time students to work together, thereby developing and exchanging knowledge and practice. This is supplemented by the wide variety of outside visiting speakers from the profession who act as visiting lecturers on our course.

    Teaching will include a wide range of approaches such as lectures, seminar, and case study work. Special emphasis on 30 credit modules will include team teaching and the setting of work-based tasks at a strategic level.

    Assessment methods will have a strong practical and professional orientation and include assignments, oral individual and group presentations, research proposals and work-based learning projects.


    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.
