Course Details

Master's degrees are more demanding than undergraduate degrees, as students may have work or family responsibilities. The course structure includes 3 years (part-time study), 12 months (full-time study, September start), and 16 months (full-time study, January start). Teaching time is 10-15 hours per week, including lectures and tutorials, with the rest for work experience or self-guided study. Independent study is 15-20 hours per week, depending on the modules studied. The last 3 months of the course focus on the research project.
Master's study is deeper and more specialized than undergraduate degrees, allowing students to focus on a topic that matters to them and their career. Independent study and research are more common than undergraduate degrees, but teaching time is mostly in-person and face-to-face. Teaching includes lectures, seminars, tutorials, laboratory sessions, and project work. Assessment is through written examinations, coursework, laboratory-based project work, and a major individual project or dissertation.
