Eligibility criteria

All students graduating from The University of Manchester in 2019 can apply. Each employer will have different requirements and criteria, so you are advised to read the job description carefully.

The notes below summarise any potential restrictions.

2018 Graduates

MGT 2019 is open to 2018 graduates who have not previously undertaken an MGT role.

International students

For information about eligibility for international students, please see the Eligibility: international students section of this website.

Masters students

  • Taught masters students cannot work full-time over the summer because you are expected to be working full-time on your dissertation. You can only work full-time once your dissertation has been submitted.
  • Taught masters students are therefore advised to start applying in August for jobs starting in September or later.
  • Postgraduate research students must agree any vacation dates with their supervisor in writing. Read the postgraduate regulations for more information.

PhD students

While you are still registered as a full-time PhD student, you are not allowed to take up full-time employment. If you are no longer registered as a student, but are awaiting your viva or completing corrections, you can work full-time. Both you and any prospective employer need to consider how you might balance the demands of completing your PhD with the demands of full-time employment.

Holly, BSc Physiology with Industrial/Professional Experience

I liked that fact that a lot of MGT roles did not require you to have a degree in a certain subject, but asked instead for a degree class.
