The majority of the taught MSc programmes run for 12 months and are intended to provide an opportunity for advanced study. These programmes are designed for graduates (or those with equivalent qualifications), either coming directly from University or having had industrial or other relevant experience.
For each of the MSc programmes there is an equivalent nine month postgraduate diploma course, which essentially requires a shorter dissertation to be submitted.

Sudents may also wish to consider following a programme that leads to a Masters degree purley by research. Please see our MPhil.
Full-time programmes begin in October. Part-time study is possible, eg for students employed locally, typically over a three year period.
