This course is aimed at students who have already obtained a Level 8 postgraduate qualification in IT and are interested in pursuing an MSc qualification. As a distance-learning programme, it suits candidates who are in full-time employment and/or living abroad. The programme is in line with the University Policy for Recognition of Prior Learning in that it recognises prior academic qualifications. This course is research based only and begins with an eight-week qualifier module (an online-taught module in research methodologies) prior to the start of the academic year. This module enables students to identify a research strategy, a research topic and an academic supervisor. Students then pursue their research project over one academic year, during which they complete a body of work equivalent to 800 hours of academic studies, culminating in a thesis submission.
