Our course is taught in an integrated fashion, so that the links between the various subjects are considered in the context of corporate governance as a whole. It asks 'why?' rather than the 'how?' of a non-academic course.
Extensive use is made throughout each module of guest speakers with practical experience of corporate secretaryship or governance.
Uniquely, our Faculty teaches corporate secretaryship using the same 'blueprint' software used by major commercial organisations to fulfil their statutory record-keeping responsibilities.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
Entrants will normally be expected to hold a degree from a UK university. Usually this will be at a minimum of a lower second class Honours (2.1 preferred) Holders of other awards, including those from non UK universities will be considered on the equivalence of their qualifications. Work experience preferred if possible. The MA is open to non graduates who have successfully completed the ICSA Foundation(ICSA certificate) and Pre Professional Programmes (ICSA Diploma) (or equivalent)
No work experience is required.
Fortunately enough I was able to find StudyPortals. Right from the start of the application to getting the confirmation of admission I was using StudyPortals.

Although our roots stretch back to the mid-19th century, we’re far more concerned with what we can do today to help our distance learning students build a more prosperous future. Since our first bricks and mortar institution opened its doors 156 years ago, we’ve witnessed lots of changes, although our commitment to advancing the knowledge and education of students has never wavered.
