In the first semester, students must take modules worth at least 25 credits while in the second semester they take the balance of the credits. M.Sc. candidates will, in addition, complete a substantial research project and submit a dissertation which accounts for a further 40 credits to be eligible for consideration for the award of the degree. Part-time students are required to take 50 credits of taught modules in the first year and the research dissertation in the second year. Term dates can be found here.
