Masters PT Tuition Schedule:
Passes are required in five core and four elective courses.
Our MSc MARKETING PROPOSED ORDER SEQUENCE will assist with course selection.
Exemptions from specific core courses may be granted to holders of recognized academic or professional qualifications if they are of degree level and if they have been obtained by examination. Exemptions will be awarded if holders of approved qualifications can provide evidence of comparability of course content. There is no provision for exemptions from elective courses.
Typically, a maximum of one exemption is granted for an undergraduate degree majoring in a subject relevant to one of courses; for example, a bachelor’s degree in Marketing may lead to an exemption from the Marketing course. Professional qualifications, obtained by examination within 5 years of application, may also lead to exemptions. For example, students who hold the CIM Professional Diploma may be awarded a credit transfer for the core Marketing course.
Eligibility for exemption is based on academic achievement only, not on work experience. If you wish to apply for an exemption you should complete the Exemption Application form and send it with supporting documentation and required fee to Edinburgh Business School, the sole authority on this matter.
For further information on exemptions please see below link and student handbook:
