The programme comprises two semesters of weekly classes followed by a period of individual research leading to a dissertation.
The MSc lasts for 12 months from September to the end of August in the following year. To be awarded the MSc degree you must also complete a dissertation. A diploma option is also available, which requires completion of the taught courses alone.
The taught courses are worth a total of 120 credit points and are assessed by coursework. Provided you achieve the required standard, you will proceed to a period of individual research from May to August, resulting in a final dissertation worth a further 60 credits.
