You should normally hold a first degree from a recognised institution (minimum Lower Second Class Honours), or international equivalent, in accounting, economics or business studies, and preferably an adequate study of finance. Alternatively, you may have any other UK Honours degree (minimum Upper Second Class) or international equivalent and preferably an adequate study of finance. Exceptionally, non-graduates may also be considered if they have extensive, relevant work experience. You must show that you have the commitment to benefit from and contribute to the course, and the ability to pass the course modules. If English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum score of 6 in each element.
