Entry Requirements for Degrees in Leadership

If you are looking to study an undergraduate leadership course you can expect to have a range of entry requirements. Firstly you will need to have relevant qualifications at college level, including those in Maths and English. As an international student you may be asked to also express your interest in the course via an interview or a letter of intent to support your application. If you are looking to study a postgraduate leadership course then you will more than likely need to already hold an undergraduate degree in a similar field. Alternatively, some universities may consider your application without an undergraduate degree if you have a significant amount of experience in the leadership and business industry. You are advised to check with the institution you are applying to for more information on course entry requirements.

If you do not meet the entry requirements you may want to consider a pathway course.
