You only need to take one of these language tests:
Minimum required score:
The IELTS – or the International English Language Test System – tests your English-language abilities (writing, listening, speaking, and reading) on a scale of 1.00–9.00. The minimum IELTS score requirement refers to which Overall Band Score you received, which is your combined average score. Read more about IELTS.Schedule IELTS
StudyPortals Tip: The UK government has confirmed new English-language testing requirements for visa and immigration purposes. Learn more
Minimum required score (Grade B2):
C1 Advanced is a Cambridge English Qualification. It reports on the Cambridge English Scale between 142 and 210. You will receive a separate score for each of the four skills (reading, writing, listening and speaking) and for Use of English. These five scores are averaged to give you an overall result for the exam. Universities and colleges may ask you to achieve a specific score, either overall or for a particular skill.
Note: degree programmes and applications may require a more specific minimum score for admission.
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.
The living costs include the total expenses per month, covering accommodation, public transportation, utilities (electricity, internet), books and groceries.
The Scottish Government does not provide any statutory student funding for international students studying in Scotland.
However, there are several scholarship and incentive schemes available to international students studying at UWS.
StudyPortals Tip: Students can search online for independent or external scholarships that can help fund their studies. Check the scholarships to see whether you are eligible to apply. Many scholarships are either merit-based or needs-based.
