An understanding of the sector you intend to work in and well-researched career goals should be demonstrated through your answer to the Career Planning Questions in the application form.
Career planning questions
In the career planning questions you will need to show you have thought about the type of employer you want to work for immediately after graduating and have researched your target organisation(s) and role. You will also need to demonstrate you have the necessary skills and experience to succeed in your chosen role. If planning to set up your own business, you will need to outline what expertise or product your business will deliver and that you have researched the market. Whilst we want our students to hit the ground running, we understand that you will also be looking to develop gaps in your skillset to prepare for your chosen career and you will need to address this in the career planning questions.
Internships and work experience
Work experience is not a requirement, although undertaking relevant internships and work placements and listing them in the ‘Industrial/Professional Experience’ section of your application form will add weight to your application. If you are currently in employment we will expect you to demonstrate how undertaking the MSc Climate Change, Management & Finance programme will help develop your career.
