Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

Continuing Professional Development (6040P)

Continuing professional development (CPD) allows you to increase your knowledge and skills without necessarily having to complete a full MSc.

You can take one or more taught modules each year for academic credit. If you accumulate enough credits, you will become eligible for a postgraduate certificate or diploma.

Our modules are not available through distance-learning. You'll need to be able to attend lectures and practical classes on campus.

Choosing your modules

You can choose any taught module from any of our MSc degree programmes if you already have all the pre-requisite modules.

Organising your time

Modules from the MSc Computer Science programme (5055) are delivered on one specific day each week over one semester. This makes it easier to arrange day-release from employment.

Modules on our other MSc programmes are taught intensively. Classes run every weekday over a three or four week period so will require a short period of study leave.
