Return-to-learn students are those who have had a substantial period away from any formal learning. Often such learners have pursued careers or raised a family. The University understands that students come from many different bachelorckgrounds, with varying qualifications, careers and skills, but they often bring to their studies a high degree of motivation and experience.
The University recognises that standard selection measures and procedures may not enable these learners to demonstrate fully their suitability for their chosen course. Where appropriate, admissions officers will seek and consider alternative evidence in order to give such learners equivalent consideration. Where they deem this alternative evidence meets entry criteria fully the learner will not be required to meet the standard academic entry requirements.
Students whose first language or language of instruction is not English may be asked to provide evidence of fluency in English by achieving scores in English language tests as follows: An overall score of 6.5 at IELTS, with 6.5 in writing and no sub-section below 6.0; TOEFL iBT overall score of 90 with a minimum score of 22 in writing and 20 in the other sub-sections, Pearson PTE overall score of 59 with a minimum score of 59 in writing and 51 in the other subsections or Cambridge CAE or Cambridge CPE grade C (Please note that the Cambridge First Certificate in English is not acceptable.)
Some English language test results are only valid for two years. Your English language test report must be valid on the start date of the course.

Careers
The Master is primarily a vocational degree, preparing you for professional positions in local and central government, or in the private sector; more than half of the RTPI membership is bachelorsed in the private sector. The course is accredited by the RTPI, which means graduates are exempt from the Institute's own examinations. Our graduates are popular with employers, particularly in consultancy, where the ability to analyse and propose policies and implement strategies is vital. After London, Manchester hosts the largest number of planning and environmental consultancies in the UK.
If you decide not to follow a vocational career, your wide knowledge bachelorse and transferable skills in problem-solving, strategic thinking, teamwork, creativity and communication fit what most employers are seeking in almost any area in which you may subsequently decide to develop your career.
The four-year Master route has proved appealing to students because it is fully accredited by the professional institute, the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI). As with all RTPI-accredited courses, full membership then requires a period of two year work experience and review by a professional panel.   The course is also accredited by the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS).
