Course summary

Course overview

If you’re an experienced practitioner looking for a professional edge, then our course is the first step you need to work up to a master’s degree.

You have the opportunity to take a shortened study programme at level 7 that will give you a stimulating and engaging learning experience, equipping you with the knowledge and skills to be an innovator in your field.

We make it easier for you to reach your academic potential because flexibility and choice sit at the heart of our programme, so you can fit your studies around your busy life.

Course summary

You'll choose the modules that are most relevant to your work, gaining 60 credits overall. Taking this option will require you to complete a proposal form indicating the proposed title, providing evidence that at least 60% of the credit for the award is specifically focused upon the indicated subject area.

You will be required to attend one of the induction days prior to starting the first module of your course (distance learning students excepted). If you have studied at the University of Cumbria in the past two years, the requirement to attend the induction day may be waived. The closing date for applications is 5 working days prior to the module start date or, if this is your first module, 5 working days prior to the induction date.

Why Choose University of Cumbria

Choose bespoke modules to suit your individual needs, create your own programme title and select whether you want to study full or part-time, at one of our campuses or from your own home.

Whatever your area of professional practice, our multidisciplinary modules enable you to evidence your learning in relation to your workplace.

As a result of this flexibility, your day-to-day working practice will benefit straight away from your academic learning.

You can study gradually at a pace to suit you, starting with a single module and building towards your Post Graduate Certificate (60 credits). If you wish to study further, you can advance onto a Post Graduate Diploma (120 credits) and then a full Masters degree (180 credits).

Our aim is to see you become the best practitioner you can be and so we endeavour to give you the freedom and choice to study in a way that fits with your interests and lifestyle, even module-by-module, with support right along the way.
