Key facts

  • Age: 21+
  • Course Length: 10 week and 20 week options available
  • English level: IELTS 5.5 or equivalent
  • Minimum Academic entry requirements:

    Students should normally have completed a qualification equivalent to a UK Bachelors degree at a recognised university, in a subject relevant to their intended progression route. Students must complete a full Bachelors degree (note that the normal length of study for a Bachelors degree differs between countries). 3 year Diploma holders from some countries e.g. China may be accepted to PMP Route A (note that such students may have limited progression).

    Progression from the PMP to higher-ranked owner universities is largely dependent on the subject and awarding university of the student’s Bachelor’s degree. 

    Students in the final year of a recognised Bachelors degree course may undertake PMP Route A, B or C in parallel with their university studies.
