Course content

Course overview

This MSc delivers advanced education and training across roles in the programme and project management profession. The course aims to equip you with key skills in all aspects of Project Management, and is open to graduates, and non-graduates with practical experience of programmes and projects. The course is based upon the PRINCE2® methodology.

Why study Programme and Project Management with us?

We offer an excellent opportunity to study Programme and Project Management for these reasons:

  • Much of the course is delivered via distance learning. You will be able to access materials remotely 24/7.
  • A range of optional modules are available to supplement the core material.
  • Essays focus on the practical application of academic research into project management disciplines.
  • You may tailor your own study programme, and adapt studies to your chosen career path and objectives.
  • Lectures are held over two-day weekend blocks for each module, roughly a month apart.
  • If appropriate, the course can draw on your practical experience and join it to academic study.

How will I be taught?

The course is located in the workplace itself. You will review and analyse your professional experience. You may also experience a mix of distance learning and quarterly workshop visits to the University, and will be guided via one-to-ones with the module tutor and group tutorials.

Full accreditation is given for experience you may have previously gained in your workplace. You will benefit from remote support from your tutor, and construct your critical analysis with your tutor.

The learning experience starts with the construction of the individual ASLA (Approved Studies Learning Agreement). ASLA is a customised combination of modules, where each of them has its own learning or assessment scheme (work-based learning, web-based learning, or face-to-face learning).

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is by written assignment.
