This Pre-Master's programme offers a route of progression on to a range of postgraduate programmes within Lincoln International Business School. The programme is designed to provide preparation for Master's study for those who don't meet our usual entry requirements. Students will study core modules which focus on contemporary issues in management and strategy alongside English for academic purposes.
In addition, you will be able to choose from a number of modules which reflect potential progression pathways to different Master's degrees, with the aim of giving you a grounding in specific subjects. These electives are designed to support students' learning and will not limit progression opportunities to the programmes in Lincoln International Business School linked to the Pre-Master's programme.

Students will also be encouraged to engage with the informal curriculum and co-curricular activities associated with the LIBS community, such as Global Opportunities and careers.
† Some courses may offer optional modules. The availability of optional modules may vary from year to year and will be subject to minimum student numbers being achieved. This means that the availability of specific optional modules cannot be guaranteed. Optional module selection may also be affected by staff availability.
