- Description -
The King’s International Pre-master's Programme (IPP) is a full-time preparation programme designed for international students who have graduated from university in their own country with a very good GPA. It is aimed at students who want to study at graduate level at top UK universities and who need or wish to improve their linguistic and academic skills. You must demonstrate evidence of a good intellectual standard, a high degree of motivation and a sufficiently high level of proficiency in English language before being admitted to the programme. There are September and January entry points to this programme.
- Purpose -
We know how difficult it can be to understand the UK academic environment and application system so we provide workshops in term two that introduce you to the culture and practices of the British education system. These workshops and individual tutorials will help you to identify and successfully apply for graduate degree programmes at UK universities.
The course will:
• Support you in gaining entry to some of the best graduate degree programmes in the UK;
• Provide you with a range of study, English and communication skills to help you succeed in your graduate study in the UK;
• Improve your understanding of and ability to use academic English appropriately and effectively at graduate level;
• Introduce you to the British educational system and the traditional lecture/seminar/tutorial format;
• Provide you with a specially designed course related to the academic field in which you intend to specialise.
The Business Management pathway focuses on the world of business and the environment in which it operates, with particular reference to the UK and the European Union. The first term provides you with a formative grounding from which to explore more advanced topics within the study of business management later in the course. It deals explicitly with different business structures, and with the external influences upon business, with particular emphasis on the EU and the issue of globalisation. In terms two and three, the course takes you through the main functional areas of business by means of such topics as marketing, human resource management and finance. In addition, current issues of importance in the world of business will also be addressed, with case studies forming an integral part of the course.
- Course format and assessment -
Lectures and seminars; academic English classes; assessment by coursework essays, oral presentations and unseen examinations.
Many of our students go on to postgraduate study at King’s in courses as varied as Law, International Marketing and Public Policy. Our students have also gone on to other prestigious UK universities such as Cambridge, UCL, LSE and many other Russell Group universities
