The course has been developed by the School of Science at the Institute of Technology, Sligo. The award is an MSc of IT Sligo. The course comprises 6 modules, providing teaching in 22 major subject areas and an MSc Research Project. For suitably qualified and candidates who wish to pursue Qualified Person Status, the course fulfils the educational requirements required by European Directive 2001/83/EC and 2001/82/EC. The course is delivered by distance learning, with certain block attendance. The modular structure and credit system will facilitate studying for the degree while working.

The programme will consist of 6 core modules. Typically the duration of the programme will be part-time over 2 years for the 6 modules. A research project is carried out in 2nd year.
