- How to apply
The Business School operates a staged admissions process for Masters courses, with deadlines throughout the year.
Receiving an offer
The Business School makes two types of offer: unconditional and conditional. An unconditional offer is made when you already meet all of the entry requirements. A conditional offer is made when you meet most of our entry requirements, but may be waiting for some examination results, for example your bachelor degree, or you may still need to meet our English language requirements.
This means that you can submit your application before receiving your results. We will review your application and a conditional offer may be made on the basis of a predicted result e.g. IELTS score.
- Improving your English
If English is not your first language, you may be able to take a pre-sessional course before you begin your studies. This can help if you:
• don't meet the English language requirements for your course
• want to improve your understanding of academic language and practices in your area of study.
Our six and ten week pre-sessional courses are designed with a progression route to the degree programme and are tailored to the subject area. To find the pre-sessional course that is suitable for your Masters degree, please visit the page for your Masters degree and check the ‘Applying, fees and funding’ tab.
If you need to study for longer to meet the requirements of your degree programme, the University of Leeds’ Language Centre also offers pre-sessional courses for longer periods, with starting points throughout the year.
