The part-time MSc is usually studied over 3 years. You can also choose to study for the interim award of Post Graduate Certificate or Post Graduate Diploma. The sequencing of modules will depend on point of entry onto the programme (September, January or June for part-time programmes).
The full-time MSc is designed to be studied over a period of 18 months. Post Graduate Certificate and Diploma stage modules can be studied simultaneously but must be successfully completed prior to the dissertation stage.
