Learning and assessment
The programme comprises seven modules which are delivered over two semesters, between October and May (worth 120 masters level credits):
- Students who successfully complete the taught modules go on to undertake a three-month research project (worth 60 masters level credits).
- Students who satisfactorily complete the 120 taught credits but chose not to undertake a project are awarded a PgDip.
- Students who satisfactorily complete the 120 taught credits and the 60 research project credits are awarded the MSc.
Each module in the programme is assessed independently by a combination of in-course assessments and tests. Most modules also have a summative end of module assessment. The project is assessed by means of a written report.
