    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.


    Entry requirements for entry in 2014You should have at least a 2:1 Honours degree or non-UK equivalent (eg, a GPA of 3.0 or above) in business and management, marketing or commerce, or a relevant social science, engineering or science degree containing at least 25% coverage of marketing, business strategy and statistical methods. Those who do not have such a background who would like to pursue further studies in the area of entrepreneurship and business development are advised to apply for MSc Management with Enterprise and Business Growth.International students with academic qualifications below those required should contact our partner institution, Glasgow International College, who offer a range of pre-Masters courses.Further information regarding academic entry language requirementsFor applicants whose first language is not English, the University sets a minimum English Language proficiency level.International English Language Testing System (IELTS) Academic module (not General Training): * overall score 6.5 * no sub-test less than 6.0 * or equivalent scores in another recognised qualification (see below)Common equivalent English language qualifications: * ibTOEFL: 92; no sub-test less than 20Pre-sessional coursesThe University of Glasgow accepts evidence of the required language level from the Language Centre Pre-sessional courses.
