Entry requirements

All prospective students must satisfy Cardiff Metropolitan University’s admission requirements for students on Masters courses as specified in Cardiff Metropolitan University’s Academic Handbook: The normal minimum requirements for entry onto Master’s Degrees are:

(i) an initial related degree awarded by another approved degree awarding body (2:2 or above); or

(ii) a non-graduate qualification which is deemed to be of a satisfactory standard for the purpose of postgraduate admission

Students who do not hold such qualifications will be assessed as to their suitability through interview, and where necessary the taking of references. Non-graduates who lack formal qualifications (i.e.: formal qualifications which marginally fall short of the normal minimum entry requirements) should be compensated for by his/her relevant work experience provided that such candidates have held, for a minimum of two years, a responsible position which is relevant to the Master’s degree to be pursued.

Course content

The MSc programme is delivered over 2 semesters of taught modules, followed by the 60 credit final project. The programme can also be studied part-time, with the minimum period of study being two years and the maximum five years.

To meet the educational and professional needs of each student, the programme offers three awards and exit points: Postgraduate Certificate; Postgraduate Diploma and MSc. Learning and teaching strategies are designed to promote active engagement of the student with the subject area and reflect the strong vocational emphasis of the awards.

Distinguishing features of the programme include:

  • The Industry Project Management module, which involves students undertaking a live consultancy project as a group. In addition, students will have the opportunity to gain an additional professionally accredited award (Certified Associate in Project Management (CAPM), accredited by the Project Management Institute) as part of this module.
  • An optional Internship module, which will enhance students’ employability.
  • An option for the final project is an Individual Consultancy Project, which gives students an opportunity to engage with an industry practitioner.
  • Students also have the opportunity to pursue a language module as an elective, potentially enhancing their employability.
  • Students can also engage with the opportunity to achieve additional professional certificates, e.g. Wine and Spirit Educational Trust, First Aid and Royal Society for Public Health Food Hygiene Awards, as these professional certificates provide added value and can enhance student CVs.

Information for international students

Students whose first language is not English will need to provide evidence of fluency to at least an IELTS 6.0 standard or equivalent.
