Course content

Our course in MSc Project Management with Advanced Practice will give you project management skills that are widely transferable to any industry. You will develop the skills to coordinate multiple work streams to deliver projects on time, within budgetary and resource allocations.

The Advanced Practice element of this programme gives you the opportunity to secure a 12-15 week internship in your penultimate semester. You’ll benefit from valuable work experience and be able to put your learning into practice in real business environments, building your employability.

This option offers the opportunity to spend three months gaining all-important work experience and employability skills in a professional work setting. You may be able to extend this over more than one semester in cases where it is adjacent to a vacation period. Support is provided to help source opportunities and to perfect the applicant CV but ultimately the onus is on the student to secure the internship position.
