Part time studies
Committed to helping people back into education whilst continuing to work or managing family and personal commitments, you may study any of the GIS programmes part time over either two or three years.
You are advised to discuss your study options with the Programme Director.
The requirement for the degree of MSc is the completion of courses and a dissertation worth a total of 180 credit points.
As a rough guide, your study pattern might be as follows:
- MSc over two years - in year one you will take most of the taught courses and carry out research preparation, and in year two you will take the remaining courses and focus on your research project.
- MSc over three years - in year one you will take about half of the taught courses, in year two you will take the remaining courses and carry out preparatory work on your research project, and in year three you will focus on your research project and produce your dissertation.
Please refer to the appropriate Degree Programme Table for further information on part time study routes.
