About the BSc Management 2-year programme

Entry requirements

Students studying at one of our partner institutions

If you are studying on an approved curriculum at one of our partner institutions, we will advise you separately of the entry requirements specific to your particular programme. In each case, we have benchmarked these to be the equivalent to 2:1 in Year 1 at Lancaster.

Other students

We will consider other students on a case-by-case basis. We will require the following:

  1. Information on your pre-degree or high school qualifications. We would typically expect you to have achieved grades ABB at A level, or an equivalent qualification, and GCSE English Language grade B/5, or an equivalent qualification.
  2. For non-native speakers of English, we require an IELTS score of 6.5 overall with at least 5.5 in each component. For other English language qualifications we accept, please see English language requirements.
  3. Information on your current or previous undergraduate study, including a list of all the modules you have completed and are yet to complete. We will need to check if you have covered sufficient academic material equivalent to the content of Year 1 of the degree at Lancaster University. We expect applicants to pass the current year of their undergraduate study (or equivalent) with the equivalent of 2:1 (upper second-class honours marks).
  4. We require a reference from someone who has taught you as part of your undergraduate studies.
