Academic Requirements

What qualifications do you need?

You must normally possess the equivalent of a Postgraduate Certificate in Project Management. If you have a degree, or an equivalent qualification or a lesser appropriate qualification, plus equivalent experience gained in industry then you are encouraged to apply for the MSc Project Management and transfer to the International course after the Postgraduate Certificate. This does not prolong the duration of your studies.

You must also have at least a SQA Higher, or equivalent, in French. Further language support will be provided throughout our course.
