To succeed in the competitive and demanding world of retailing, potential managers need an understanding of the industry and the environment in which it operates, in addition to the technical and functional skills necessary for success. Retailers recognise the demands they place on graduates entering the industry, and significant responsibility and reward often comes at an early age. Retailers also acknowledge retail graduates as having a thirst for knowledge, alongside a passion for the sector. You will graduate with the skills of analysis and critical evaluation, and with a high level of innovative and creative ability, making you perfect for the ever-changing and fast-paced retail environment.
You are not only taught in the classroom, through both lectures and practical sessions, but are also taught out in the retail environment, through visiting stores and Head Offices, and through field trips to relevant shopping centres and retail hubs.

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.
