This postgraduate programme brings theory to life through its exciting work placement element and applied learning focus, enabling participants to apply acquired knowledge and competencies in a real-world workplace environment.
The programme equips graduates with the attributes required by business to make an immediate contribution to the organisation through its work placement experience element.
The industrial placement is of four months duration, from May to August, and affords the student a unique opportunity to implement and reflect on the theories learned on the programme. It will complement the students education and broaden his/her skill set. A number of progressive local enterprises partner with us in this initiative.
Work placement is recognised by prospective employers and students alike as being a very sought after aspect of an academic programme.
Another new aspect of this programme is the module Communication for Professional Life. As communication skills are generally deemed an integral element of enquiry-based learning, this module will prepare graduates for executive and leadership scenarios which require negotiation and persuasive expertise and ability with the written word.
