Normally, entrants will be expected to hold a first degree from an internationally recognised university, which has a business or management component. Usually, this will be at a minimum of lower second class honours. Alternatively, entrants with significant experience within the financial sector industry will be considered. Candidates who do not possess any of these entry criteria, but can demonstrate appropriate relevant experience in a post of management or financial responsibility may be admitted if, in the opinion of the admissions tutor, they are capable of profiting from and contributing to the pathway. Requests for admission with AP (E)L will be managed via standard university procedures
