Q. How do I apply?
A. Simply fill out our application form, and return it to us via fax, post or scan and email it to us. Assuming your application is successful, we will immediately offer you a conditional place. We will then contact you to request a copy of your degree certificate, two references, and a copy of your IELTS or TOEFL certificate (if required). Once these are received and approved, your offer becomes unconditional.
Q. What are the average living costs for Oxford?
A. About GBP£6,500 per year. This is calculated as follows = £3,500 for accommodation, £150 for books, £200 for membership of clubs and professional bodies, £2,200 for food and clothing, and £450 for other expenses. This is a minimum estimate.
Q. Will the College be able to find me suitable accommodation?
A. Yes, accommodation can be arranged in single and shared rooms/houses. The rent for accommodation varies from GBP£90 per week upwards. If you would like the college to find you accommodation (rather than using our accommodation partner LiveOut), please inform the College at least 6 weeks in advance of your intended date of travel and forward GBP£300 as a deposit for the reservation of the accommodation.
Q. If I do not have 3 years work experience can I still study for an MBA?
A. Yes, if you would like to study for the MCC programmes, no work experience is required - as is the case in much of America, but very rarely in the UK.
Q. What happens if my visa is refused?
A. If a visa is refused please inform the College immediately so that help and advice may be given in order to appeal against the decision. If an appeal is unsuccessful, your full deposit will be returned to you.

Q. Can I study for an MBA without a degree?
A. The MBA is a Post-Graduate Degree and normally you should have a first Degree before starting. If, however, you can show academic aptitude, we will accept a GMAT score of 550+ instead of a first degree.
Q. Can I get part-time employment while studying?
A. Yes, as long as the employment does not interfere with your studies. Full-time study is recognised as a minimum of 25 hours study per week. If you wish to work part-time in the UK, we advise you to choose a two-year management programme.
Q. Can I get help with my English?
A. Our Pre-Masters Diploma provides intensive English tuition - if required. We strongly recommend that students with doubts about their English language ability should come to England three months, or one year, before the start of their MBA programme in order to take intensive English lessons. If you wish, we will be happy to organise and supervise qualified English tuition, either in groups or individually. Please note that fees for English language lessons are not included in the MBA Programme fees.
Q. Will I receive career guidance?
A. Yes, we have members of staff available to guide and advise students on their careers. Career advice can also be obtained from professional consultants associated with Magna Carta College.
Q. Is Magna Carta College part of Oxford University?
A. No. Magna Carta College is a private independent college that offers a challenging and motivational programme leading to degrees validated by the University of Wales. Students are taught in University of Oxford institutions, and have access to Oxford University and College facilities such as the Bodleian Library. Students are taught by University of Oxford, London and Birmingham professors.
Q. What do I need to bring for the programme?
A. Only a laptop computer with an internet connection. All your study material will be posted on our intranet.
