Pre-Masters Graduate Certificate

About this course

2016-2017 Pre-Masters Certificate programme has been designed as a bridging mechanism for students who wish to progress from undergraduate to postgraduate study at Ulster and will lead to a distinct award, the Graduate Certificate in Business.

The 2016-2017 Pre-Masters Certificate course lasts for 1 semester and consists of 4 modules. The programme covers study skills as well as elements of a pathway course.

You will have the opportunity to develop knowledge, skills and insight in the following areas:

  • The learning styles required for academic purposes at postgraduate level
  • Problem-solving and decision-making skills to draw reasoned conclusions from data and make appropriate recommendations
  • The ability to use academic literature and a wide range of research and evaluation methods
  • Use a wide range of research methods to critically evaluate concepts, arguments and evidence in an objective manner


Students, who successfully complete the Graduate Certificate with a minimum average of 50% across all modules, will be in a position to progress on to one of our Masters programmes in London or Birmingham.

Progression on to the MBA is conditional on passing the Graduate Certificate with an overall pass mark of at least 50% at the first attempt and normally the possession of 2 years’ relevant work experience.

The Graduate Certificate also serves as a stand-alone, internationally recognised qualification which will be awarded upon achieving a pass of 40% in each module.

Please note: International students progressing on to the MBA, MSc Marketing or MSc International Business will need to apply for a second visa if the Graduate Certificate is studied as a standalone programme. Alternatively, you can study the Extended MSc Marketing or Extended MSc International Business.
