SCL International College's postgraduate diploma is designed for students wishing to take a master’s in business-related subjects at UK universities. It meets the entry requirements of the University of Gloucestershire for the final part of its MBA. Therefore, our course takes you two thirds of the way to a full Gloucestershire MBA, as you only need to finish the final 60 master’s credits with a dissertation, which can either be completed at the university or online. Students can alternatively progress to full master’s courses at a range of other British universities.
Students will normally have successfully completed a degree. Some diplomas at a higher education level might also meet the entry requirements. Students must have the following language level at the time of enrolment:
For students who do not have this level of English, Pre-Sessional English for Postgraduate Studies are available.
