How to apply
Advice to applicants
Mitigating circumstances may be personal or family illness, other family circumstances, change of teachers during a course, problems with school facilities or an unusual curriculum followed by your school or college. We recommend that information on mitigating circumstances that have affected or are likely to affect your academic performance will be included in the referee's report. We cannot usually take into account information that is supplied after an adverse decision has been made on an application by the admitting School. If you encounter mitigating circumstances after you have submitted your application, please inform the admissions staff in the School to which you applied as soon as possible.
Where mitigating circumstances have already been taken into account, for example by the relevant Exam Board, we will not be able to make further allowances.
If you have followed a non-standard educational route and have been, for example, educated at home, your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. You will be required to demonstrate that you meet the academic entry requirements as specified for the course. We will also require a reference which should be written by somebody who knows you well enough, in an official capacity, to write about you and your suitability for higher education. Please refer to UCAS for further information: https://www.ucas.com/ucas/undergraduate/apply-and-track/how-get-reference
The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will form the consideration of application. Unit grades will not normally form part of offer conditions, except for courses in the School of Mathematics.
Alliance Manchester Business School will not be using the A* for standard entry requirements or offer making. It may however be taken into account at the point of confirmation to inform decisions on candidates who have narrowly missed the terms of their offers, and in the allocation of School Scholarships. Please note that the A* grade applies to UK A-levels only and has not been introduced for international A-levels. Courses will therefore state separate entry requirements for international A-levels where appropriate.
A-levels in a native or heritage language
We consider applications holistically taking into consideration the overall educational environment. Where native langue A levels are offered we will consider them in line with other subjects that the student has undertaken.
How your application is considered
We are looking for evidence of your interest in this subject, and your commitment to studying it.
Strong examination results are the main factor in admitting students to our courses. We consider other information to ensure we admit students with the most outstanding potential. This is assessed within a structured framework and includes prior and predicted grades. Your referee should give realistic grade predications for all qualifications that you are currently studying at the top of their reference. If you attend a non-UK school or college that does not provide predicted grades your referee should explain this policy within their reference. Further guidance for referees is provided by UCAS (www.ucas.com).

Transfers from students outside the University of Manchester to a course in our school are not considered without a full application through UCAS. You may be asked to provide clarification of the reasons for a transfer as well as a transcript of grades from your current institution.Requests for transfers from students already attending the University of Manchester will be considered on a case by case basis with regards to our entry requirements for academic level and English language ability. Where a request to transfer comes from an internal candidate we will normally consider you for year one entry and your current academic transcript of grades will be considered alongside your request to transfer. All requests to transfer to Alliance Manchester Business School should be sent in writing to the Undergraduate Admissions Team by email initially, firstname.lastname@example.org .
Flexibility of programmes
You can choose to enroll initially for the BSc in Information Technology Management for Business (ITMB) (GN51) without having to give too much consideration at such an early stage in deciding on a particular ITMB specialism, as the first year of both ITMB and ITMB (specialism) follow the same core structure. As you progress to your second year, you have the opportunity to choose second year options that allow you to progress along an ITMB specialist route. Similarly, you can choose options that allow you to remain on a non-specialist ITMB route. Under this flexible system you are able to defer the choice of your eventual degree title until the start of your second year and once you have had the opportunity to study first year course units in all the available specialist subjects.
