Course structure

The course is modularised and semesterised. The full-time MSc is taught within two 15-week semesters, with the third semester used for completion of the MSc project.


Most taught modules involve 30 class contact hours. This is made up of a four hour teaching block each week, for 15 weeks. All full-time students undertake the six (6) core Semester I modules (Semester I 1st Cycle and Semester I 2nd Cycle 3 modules), and six (6) taught modules from the Semester II menu, either in the International Marketing or HRM direction. The MSc dissertation is completed over the Semester III period.


Students who don’t exit with a MSc register for a postgraduate Diploma. An illustration of the three teaching periods is shown on the following page.
