The example course structure listed is indicative and may be subject to change in future years. The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant.
Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. Please note that not all combinations of elective modules may be possible because of timetabling.

You'll be assessed through Individual assignments, group projects, end-of-semester examinations and a dissertation.
We’ll teach you how to identify opportunities, solve problems and inspire others. Many of our teaching staff are world-class researchers working in policy-relevant areas. Our courses are based on their research. We also bring in guest speakers from business, local government and industry.
