Course content

On this two year, part-time course we develop capable and resourceful public service managers with the skills to make evidence based decisions, take the lead on initiatives, collaborate with external agencies and solve complex problems within and across organisational boundaries. From the outset students will receive individual support in engaging with masters level study and are enabled to explore particular topics that are of personal interest to them. Every LMPS student has a personal tutor, typically a module leader, who will retain a mentoring role for the student throughout their studies. With support from their personal tutor students develop a personal ‘learning action plan’ which is intended to guide their studies on the LMPS programme.

Information for international students

If English is not the first language, applicants will need IELTS 6.5, or 6.0 plus completion of the University's 4-week English course, or equivalent.
