Once the Postgraduate Diploma stage has been completed, students are expected to present a written research proposal in respect of their intended dissertation topic. Once approved, this will normally form the basis of the Masters thesis. Students undertake research and prepare the dissertation independently but under supervision by a member of academic staff.
A good honours degree in any field relevant to international trade, such as law, economics, management, public policy, accountancy or business, should form the basis of an application. Applicants who do not possess an honours degree, but have a degree or degree-equivalent qualification, as well as work experience at a suitable level within an organisation, for an appropriate length of time, will be considered, as will qualifications from an approved professional body. All international students, for whom English is not their first language, must provide evidence of linguistic ability, by gaining either IELTS 6.5 or its equivalent in TOEFL prior to receiving an unconditional offer of a place on the course.
