In general terms, a Masters’ degree can enable career progression in a highly competitive market place and promote career mobility. Career opportunities will vary according to students’ fields of work, but holders of a Masters’ degree can expect to demonstrate highly flexible and transferable skills such as high levels of initiative, leadership of learning and mastery of a subject area.
It is worth researching on-line to see if there are Independent Trusts or Foundations who may be able to offer bursaries in your subject or make a fee contribution. Publications such as The Grants Register and The Directory of Grant-Making Trusts provide information on possible sources of funding. On-line databases also include Scholarship Research and Postgraduate Scholarships.
Applicants will need a first degree, however admission on the grounds of experience is considered for highly experienced applicants. Accreditation of prior, certificated learning can be given for a maximum of 90 credits for relevant Masters' study undertaken within the 5 years prior to enrolment. All applicants will be asked to complete a Professional Development Plan on entry of the course to determine their choice of modules and pattern of study. Fees can be paid in instalments and discounted fees may be possible for alumni and/or approved partners.
