If you are interested in advancing your career through higher education but have a limited amount of time to dedicate to your study, our MSc Professional Practice could be an ideal solution for you. Students have the option of undertaking an MSc Professional Practice in Computing and IT or an MSc Professional Practice in Project Management, allowing you to align your studies with your professional development.
This framework has been developed to enable learners to enhance their workplace and learning capabilities while effectively enhancing professional practice in computing and IT or project and programme management. Based on work-based activities and assignments, these programmes utilise existing continued professional development (CPD) activity as a basis for further analysis and development, ensuring learning can be applied to your workplace.
The blended learning delivery combines weekend classroom sessions with individual guidance tutoring via email, telephone or face-to-face sessions. The weekend classroom sessions can also be attended remotely if you are unable to travel into the campus.

This programme is available with two separate awards allowing you to develop your capabilities in either Computing and IT or Project Management. Ideal for allowing working professionals to study alongside their full-time job, this programme allows students to demonstrate their workplace and professional learning to identify opportunities for self and organisational improvement. Using the workplace as the context for learning ensures relevance and a clear return on investment from each module completed.
To ensure the programme is individualised to the specific learner and their organisation, each learner will be allocated a guidance tutor who will provide individual guidance sessions via Skype, email, phone or face to face meetings during each module.
The cost of the MSc is £5,995, inclusive of all materials and examinations.
The modules you will study do not require you to purchase additional textbooks although we recommend you allow an additional £200 for the duration of your studies should you choose to purchase any additional reading materials.
