    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.

Academic Requirements

You will have at least three years' management experience in a professional work environment, and will normally hold an undergraduate honours degree or equivalent professional qualification. Applicants must submit a CV detailing their management experience and, if you have sat the GMAT, it would be helpful if you could submit your scores (although GMAT is not expected at Sussex). Suitable applicants will also be interviewed as part of the selection process.


Work Experience

At least 3 year(s) of work experience are required.
