Applicants normally hold a recognised 1st or 2nd Class Honours degree from a UK university or international equivalent in a relevant subject area. Students with lower level qualifications or qualifications in a different subject area, but relevant experience in the leather industry will also be considered on an individual basis. Applicants for whom English is not their 1st language need to demonstrate that they meet the minimum English language requirement of IELTS 6.5 (or equivalent). If an applicant does not meet standard entry requirements, it is possible to undertake a single module and, upon successful completion of this module, progress to the full MSc qualification.

Optional modules: hide to high street; international marketing strategy; leather science; managing operations in the supply chain; marketing: principles and management; podiatry applied to the footwear industry; sustainable manufacture; wastes management.
A wide range of approaches to teaching is used with a mixture of lectures, seminars, workshops and practical sessions being employed with course teaching materials made available through our virtual learning environment. Modules are mainly assessed by coursework including practical reports, presentations, literature reviews and dissertation.
