Postgraduate Advanced Workshops

Places on our Postgraduate Advanced Workshops are by invitation, after our Admissions team receive your application.

The purpose of the workshop is to assess your suitability for the MA in Business and Management (MBM) programme and equally for you to find out more about us and see if we're the right fit for you.

The Postgraduate Advanced Workshop contains four elements, all of which need to be completed:

  • Core Abilities Test
  • Watson Glaser Test
  • Written Assignment
  • Academic Interview

The Core Abilities Test measures an individual's verbal, numerical and abstract reasoning skills - the building blocks for success in any career. The Watson Glaser Test measures critical thinking. The Written Assigment measures your skills in written communication, analytical thinking and problem solving, planning and organising, and learning agility. Finally your Academic Interview is our chance to meet you and find out why you are interested in studying with us as well as your opportunity to meet one of your future tutors and ask questions.

If you have applied via our professional experience entry route, your performance at the workshop will determine whether we can offer you a place on our programmes.

If you have applied via our undergraduate degree entry route, this Workshop is optional, however all applicants who successfully complete the Advanced Workshop will be awarded a partial fee waiver of £2,500 - reducing your tuition fees to £10,000.
