The MSc Internal Medicine programme is structured into modules for qualifications at Certificate, Diploma and Master’s level and the time commitment required.
You can study for a Certificate (1 year), Diploma (2 years) or Master’s (3 years) degree. Each year of your programme will consist of 60 credits. First and Second year are made up of 10 and/or 20 credit Core modules as well as a number of 10 credit elective modules of your choice. Third year is the Dissertation year where you work on a piece of your own research.
Although you only need to commit 8 - 12 hours to study per week, you are expected to attend weekly online tutorials which are organised in advance and usually take place on a Tuesday or Wednesday at around 1800 hours GMT (although this is subject to change). Your timetable is organised into appropriate blocks of study, taking into account the University’s academic year.
