Full details of modules can be found in the M-level Book of Modules. Those students who meet entrance criteria for the MScASD or the MScABA may enrol on a standalone module (short course) and accumulate credit points which may eventually lead to a Diploma or Masters.  Please contact us for further information.

Flexibility and Short Courses

Students can exit the programme at various points: those exiting after 60 credit points will receive an Advanced Certificate of Education.  Those exiting after 120 credit points will gain a Diploma in Advanced Studies in Education. Those who wish to obtain a Master's will complete a 15-20,000 word dissertation. This is a supervised piece of work undertaken with a specialist in the field.

Whilst students enrolled on the MSc will be required to take modules with a total of 120 CATS points and a dissertation in order to complete the programme successfully, there are also opportunities for students to enrol on any of the modules as a standalone 'short course'.  Those students who meet entrance criteria for the MSc may thus enrol on a short course and accumulate credit points which may eventually lead to a Diploma or Master's.
