The course aims to develop managers who will be able to develop a skill set to make a significant contribution at the appropriate level to aviation management in the 21st century. Emphasis will be placed on the specific roles and skills of managers in problem-based real life situations.
The programme offers students the opportunity to study core business topics alongside specialist modules that deal with operations and strategy in the complex and fast changing aviation industry. The teaching on the programme is structured to enable part-time students to fit their studies around their professional careers.
You will study:
* Air Transport Planning, Design and Operations;
* Air Transport Strategy and Marketing;
* Aviation Safety, Security and Emergency Planning;
* Financial Decision Making and Risk Analysis;
* Air Transport Business Simulation;
* Project Management;
* People Management;
* Study Skills and Research Methods.
In addition the student must satisfactorily complete an individual and group aviation project.
A key feature of the course is very strong industry links developed through a programme of industry site visits (to airlines and airport both in the UK and potentially overseas), visiting industry guest lecturers and client-based group and individual project work. All students also receive a subscription to the online news service Flightglobal Pro throughout the course of their study.
Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
Applicants are expected to have one of the following qualifications: * a minimum of a second class honours degree in any subject; * a relevant professional qualification of an equivalent level; * a lower qualification plus appropriate and relevant working experience at a professional level; * students whose first language is not English are required to have IELTS 6.5. or equivalent. Alternatively, students may be with admitted with IELT 6.0 if they attend a compulsory pre-sessional English course, operated by Coventry University, following their Master programme. English Language Requirements IELTS band: 6.5 IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
