  • Course description

    The course is offered via full time (one year), part time (two years) and attendance free distance learning (two or three years). Part time students attend classes on a day-release basis. Many of our part time and distance learning students are in highly demanding employment. These students can opt to reduce the level of study per year and increase the study period to a maximum of six years, thus gaining a respected postgraduate degree whilst contributing to the CPD requirements of their professional bodies.

    Full-time and part-time students start in early October.  For distance learning study, the main start date is in early October but there are two additional start dates in early January and May.  Students typically complete a coursework assignment, for each module studied; sit module examinations in April of each year of study; and work on their dissertation or project report from May to September. Arrangements can be made for distance learning students to sit exams at a number of centres throughout the world.

    Distance learning students receive comprehensive module study packs by post. A PC with e-mail and Internet access is necessary for those students to gain the fullest learning experience from the course.


    Students tailor this course to meet their own needs. Students choose any eight modules from the 40 offered, bringing together subjects of relevance to their current employment, subjects that will increase their opportunities for career progression in their chosen field and subjects of purely personal interest. The course is completed by undertaking a dissertation/project report in a relevant area.

    This course can contribute towards the CPD requirements of those in the construction and property professions. And, with mixed mode delivery, students can choose the method of learning most appropriate to changing career or personal circumstances.

    Course Director: appointed to students dependent on module choice.
