This is a modular programme which means that you are working while you are studying. You will need to make time to spend 2 weeks full-time on campus when the modules are in session (12 weeks in total), and spend significant time on independent study in between, so it is important that you have your employer’s support to attend the programme. 

Our classes are highly interactive and the power of personal relationships is part and parcel of the programme. Our faculty are experts at tapping into the experience and knowledge of the participants in the room to encourage the exchange of best practices and collective learning. Therefore, the programme cannot be done online.

The programme duration is 18 months and it comprises 6 on-campus modules of 12 weeks in total.

Yes, there is significant work to be completed between modules and this independent study time equates to approximately 17 weeks. Between modules 5 and 6, you will also need to work on a major degree project.
