Many international students have the maturity and ability to complete a business-related Master’s degree but do not have the subject knowledge for entry onto a business course at this level.
The MQP course will strengthen students’ academic qualifications and will enable them to perfect the English and the study skills needed to attain a business qualification at this level.
Depending on their ability, students will normally spend nine months at the Oxford Business College, in the centre of Oxford. This will be followed by a further year at a UK university in order to complete a Masters degree.
Thus, in less than two years from starting an MQP course, students can complete an MBA or business-related Master’s degree at a UK university.
