To enter the MSc in Environmental Economics and Environmental Management directly the applicant:

1) must have obtained, or expect to obtain, at least an upper second class degree (i.e. 2.1 or equivalent) 2) must have studied both some economics and some biology, one at degree level 3) IELTS: 6.0; TOEFL: paper-based: 550; CBT: 213; iBT: 79; and Cambridge: Cambridge Proficiency: A, B, C; Cambridge Cert in Advanced English: A

However, able candidates may compensate for a lack of undergraduate economics by taking the Economics Department's Summer School in Microeconomics and Statistics (4 week course) starting the last week of August 2007. Special consideration may be made for candidates who wish to take courses in mid-career as continued professional development. Diploma applicants must also have an adequate level of English.

Applicants whose native language is not English may wish to improve their English whilst studying at York by attending (for a small extra fee) courses run by the University's Language Centre during their degree. As well as improving language skills this course will also provide a valuable introduction to British culture.

Admission to UK universities often requires that students have completed a recognized Bachelor's degree. International students should consider taking a Pre-Master to gain access to UK universities when:
