Course Summary

Course Overview

The MSc programme is delivered over 2 semesters of taught modules, followed by the 60 credit final project. The programme can also be studied part-time, with the minimum period of study being two years and the maximum five years. To meet the educational and professional needs of each student, the programme offers three awards and exit points: Postgraduate Certificate; Postgraduate Diploma and MSc. Learning and teaching strategies are designed to promote active engagement of the student with the subject area and reflect the strong vocational emphasis of the awards.

Assessment

The role of assessment is threefold; to monitor student performance as they proceed through the programme, to provide feedback to students and to measure the level of attainment at the end of the programme. To achieve these objectives the assessment adopted by the Programme Team involves a range of coursework which are designed to give students the opportunity to submit evidence of reflective thought, reading, analysis and problem-solving abilities, in addition to relating their academic studies to their actual work experience. Assessments will relate directly to learning outcomes and one assessment will usually cover a range of learning outcomes. Candidates will be assessed in taught modules and, for the MSc students, by means of an Independent Research Project.

Employability & Careers

All students undertake a live consultancy project through the Industry Project Management module, which provides an opportunity to engage with employers in the industry. As part of this module, they have the opportunity to gain an accredited qualification from the Project Management Institute. Students undertake operational, supervisory and if possible, management tasks and duties within the organisation; During their internship students are expected to follow the same work pattern as other employees in the organisation and to perform routine work consistent with that which they aspire to on successful completion of their programme of study. They will also undertake a work based project tailored to meet the needs of the organisation. Students can opt for an individual consultancy project as their final project.

Entry requirements

The normal minimum requirements for entry onto Master’s Degrees are: an initial related degree awarded by another approved degree awarding body (2:2 or above); or a non-graduate qualification which is deemed to be of a satisfactory standard for the purpose of postgraduate admission. Students who do not hold such qualifications will be assessed as to their suitability through interview, and where necessary the taking of references. Non-graduates who lack formal qualifications (i.e.: formal qualifications which marginally fall short of the normal minimum entry requirements) should be compensated for by his/her relevant work experience provided that such candidates have held, for a minimum of two years, a responsible position which is relevant to the Master’s degree to be pursued.
