    I had no idea that UCL offered Management courses. Do you have a web link for this? I didn't see it before.
    Thanks

    **** sorry I havent checked this for a while. Expect to be asked why management? So you kind of need to talk about how it will personally benefit you. Make sure you know where you potentially want to work in the next year or so cause they are very focused on employment. They might challenge you and even say "I dont think you are suited for this course" and I think they are waiting for a reaction from you to challenge that statement.

    They will also run through your cv and talk about it in more depth.

    Let me know if you need anymore help.

    Yes, that is exactly what happened. I had my CV open in front of me luckily and talked her over it. Moreover, I was fine in telling here where I plan to work after the MSc so she sounded assumed. It was all very nice. She said they will most probably give me an offer and will send the letter in some days.

    the app is pretty much standard but you cant apply online. you have to submit the docs and references by post so thats annoying. but good luck with everything!

    I got an email from Adrian Smith late last week. He said the course has now been approved and offer letters will be sent out very soon.

    Join the facebook group if you guys get offers.

    Here's my last two minutes in short:

    - WHAT?! UCL offers a Masters degree in Management?! There was nothing in their site about that when I checked earlier this year!!!
    - *panically types in ucl.ac.uk and searches the course list for the programme*
    - WTH?! It's not in the course list
    - *uses site search*
    - *finds the link to the programme page - temporary heart failure*
    - *sees 8k GBP tuition fee, heart jumps from joy (cheap compared to KCL/Imperial/LSE etc)
    - *sees that it is a conversion course for people with a non-management first degree - starts crying*

    Oh well, seems like I'll have to make do with Westminster or KCL (if I ever hear from them and get in) then...
    What ever you do, dont go to Westminster, you will regret it

    Hi,

    I applied for MSc Management @ UCL

    applied online on - 15 June 2010
    second reference completed - 17 june
    received acknowledgement
    email saying my application is complete - 30 June

    My cousin went to UCL on 29th to get more details. the admissions said that they have sent it to the department on 29th morning and should get a response in a week or two. Meanwhile tried contacting Adrian Smith, the course admin. He said that the seats are more or less full. Waiting for the decision from the department. Is my application too late.

    regards,

    Sona

    My undergraduate degree is joint honours (one of the subjects being business) do you think that if I were to apply I would still stand a good shot?

    It's definitely not too late as it says they will accept applications until the start of term. It they were full they would also say on their website (like for technology entrepreneurship).

    The course content is a joke and equivalent to a first year bachelors in management. You are paying 10 k or whatever it is for the brand name. Not worth it imo as you could get into LSE with similar academics.

    I would have applied for it, if LSE had failed me. But you're probably right about the course contents - it's probably meant for people NOT from a business/management background.

    It's not, indeed.
    Just read what's written on their website.

    The MSc in Management is a conversion degree designed to equip students with a
    first degree in a non-management or business subject with knowledge and understanding of business and organisations. If your undergraduate degree is in management or business, the curriculum of MSc Management will almost certainly overlap with your earlier studies and you may wish to consider a more specialised Master's degree.

    I know its a conversion, but then again all Msc Management don't require a prior degree in management. Look at the course connt of CASS or Imperials MSc Management and the UCL content is simple as hell in comparison.
