Attendance

The full-time MSc takes one calendar year to complete and consists of two taught terms with a substantial research project during the summer semester. The MSc can also be undertaken in a part-time day release mode. Part-time students who are in full-time employment will be able to gain credit for work-based activity in the work-based learning modules that are a feature of the programme.

For the PGDip, full-time students take four modules per semester for semesters 1 and 2 with the course running from September to May. Part-time students generally take two modules per semester but this can be altered as required. Part-time students attend one day per week during term time and some of the modules run in the evening.

Work placement / study abroad

Part-time students can undertake work based learning modules.

Professional recognition
