New year, New start; January Masters

By StudyLink

Start your Masters in January, and reap the rewards

For UK-based students, starting a Masters course in January can ensure that you have enough time to focus on completing your final year successfully, and also give you the time to create and submit a strong application to start your Masters.
For international students, a January start date may fit better with your School year. For many the academic year runs from January to December, meaning that students have the pressure of submitting an application during their final year, but then have to wait over half a year to start their Masters.
Joining a Masters course that starts in January may also improve your chances in landing the job you want after graduation. During the summer is an extremely competitive time to join the job market as so many graduates are looking for jobs during that time. Opportunities come up throughout the year, but by starting your job search in January you’ll have the added advantage of missing the summer influx!
Here at Nottingham Business School, we have a range of full-time Masters starting in January 2014, including:
MSc Management
MSc Management and International Business
MSc Management and Marketing
MSc Management and Finance
MSc International Business
MSc Finance
MSc Marketing
MSc Trading in Global Financial Markets
Whether you want to delve deeper into the world of business and management, or gain a competitive edge in a specific field, we can provide a course that will match your career aspirations and needs.
We make industry connections our focus, and currently have connections to more than 900 organisations across the world. These organisations are involved with the School in a variety of ways, and the close working relationships mean that our students benefit from the knowledge, expertise and opportunities they can provide.

Putting you into industry

An unforgettable induction
At the beginning of our Masters courses, all students take part in a set development programme. This includes a short residential team-building course, normally in the Peak District.
Tuition Fee Scholarships
We have a number of competitive scholarships available to students starting on one of our full-time Masters in January 2014. The deadline for applications is 4pm on the 29th November 2013.
