How to apply

If you already have an undergraduate university or university of applied sciences degree, select “Master’s programme” in the online application form, under Choose Programme. You can save your progress and return to continue your application later if needed. When you have completed all sections, click on Send. You will receive a message that your application has been successfully sent.

You can apply throughout the year. The available start dates and application deadlines depend on your background, as more time will be needed to apply for a residence permit.

Upload the following documents with your application:

Your documents will be sent to the University of Northampton for approval, which is why all documentation will have to be in English, or officially translated in English.

1. Personal statement

Write a personal statement with a maximum limit of 4,000 characters. You can find instruction on the internet on “how to write a UCAS personal statement”. The statement should primarily describe your motivation to achieve a postgraduate (Master’s) degree, how you foresee that you will benefit from the degree, and why you would be a perfect candidate for the programme.  The statement will also represent your written English skills, so do ensure that there are no errors, your grammar is correct and structure well thought out.

2. Diplomas and transcripts of previous studies

Please upload your undergraduate transcripts and diplomas to your application, as well as transcripts of any additional studies.

3. Proof of your English language proficiency

Upload your IELTS results (overall score of 6.5 with no section below 6.0) or similar, such as TOEFL. If you have at least a magna cum laude in English A in the Finnish matriculation exam, please upload your matriculation diploma with your application.

4. Reference letter

Send to us, or ask your referee to send to us, one academic reference letter, and if possible, also a professional reference letter recommending you for the demanding MBA-studies. If your undergraduate degree is over 10 years old, you can opt to send a professional reference letter instead. Further instructions are found on the application form.

5. CV

6. Copy of your passport and residence permit, if applicable
