Entry requirements

The entry requirement for the MSc in Operational Research and Management Science, the MSc in Management Science and Market Analysis and the MSc in Logistics and Supply Chain Management is normally a first or good second class honours degree in a quantitative subject. Students with first degrees in mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering and management science are regularly admitted, and applicants from other disciplines who can show evidence of quantitative problem solving skills are encouraged to apply.

You can find out more about the international qualifications we accept on the main University website.

English language requirements

Studying at Masters level demands a high level of fluency in written and spoken language, and excellent comprehension. For this reason, non-native speakers of English are normally asked to demonstrate their English language competence by taking one of the internationally recognised tests below.

Our minimum language requirements for postgraduate study at LUMS are:

  • IELTS 7.0, with at least 6.0 in each element
  • Pearson Academic (PTE) 70, with at least 55 in each element
  • Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English (CPE) grade C
  • ToEFL iBT 100 (with minimum 22 in each skill)

Please note: IELTS and Pearson scores are valid for two years from the test date. Also, note that ToEFL tests are no longer recognised by the UK Visas and Immigration Office for entry to pre-sessional English language courses.
