Application and selection

How to apply

Apply through UCAS .

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.

Unit grade

The University of Manchester welcomes the provision of unit grade information which, like all other available information, will form the consideration of application.

A*

Alliance Manchester Business School does not issue offers on the Grade A* as standard practice. 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 offer.

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

Predicted Grades

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).

Interview requirements

We do not as a rule interview applicants. However, we reserve the right to interview candidates with non-standard backgrounds, eg. Mature students and students aged under 17.

Returning to education

The University encourages applications from applicants returning to education after employment or other experience. Your application will be considered against the standard entry criteria of the course to which you applied. However, we recognise that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable you to demonstrate fully your suitability for your chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions staff will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give you equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence to meet entry criteria fully, you will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.

Overseas (non-UK) applicants

International applicants will be assessed against the standard entry criteria of the course to which they are applying.

Deferrals

Applications for deferred entry are considered equally to other applications up to the point of confirmation. Deferred entry is granted on the discretion of admissions staff, and is normally granted for one year only and 2 years at the maximum. Some English Language test results, such as IELTS or TOEFL, are only valid for two years from the test date.

Policy for applicants who resit their qualifications

We consider applicants who are resitting their qualifications. Whilst we do not increase our entry requirements for the first resit this would be considered for subsequent resits.

Re-applications

If you applied in the previous year and your application was not successful you may apply again. Your application will be considered against the standard course entry criteria for that year of entry. In your new application you should demonstrate how your application has improved. We may draw upon all information from your previous applications or any previous registrations at the University as a student when assessing your suitability for your chosen course. If you are applying for a place for the same year of entry through UCAS Extra, you should provide additional evidence of your suitability for the course. If you are applying through clearing you are required to meet the clearing requirements. In both UCAS Extra and clearing the places will be subject to availability.

Transfers

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, ug-mbs@manchester.ac.uk

    What our students say

    'I particularly enjoyed Operations Management as our lecturer does not teach from books but from his own experience, which makes the course very interactive and practical. It was structured around a group project which has given me a good example of teamwork to talk about in interviews, as we came up with our own business and faced challenges as a group.' - Daria Savilova from Russia, final year Management student

    'The management course offered allowed me to choose some finance and accounting modules, which I knew I would be good at, as well as some marketing and human resource modules, which I was interested in. It was this variety that made me choose my course.' - Clare Douglas, final year Management student
