    -Some modules in the second group may have modules from the first as prerequisites.
    -Timetabling and other considerations may limit the combinations of modules that can be studied.

    Teaching and Assessment Methods

    Modules are taught using lectures and seminar sessions and are supported by a range of structured practical and laboratory work. Performance in modules is assessed by means of open and closed examination papers and a range of continuously assessed work. All MSc students are required to produce a dissertation which includes the results obtained in the individual project module.

    Duration and mode of study

    All MSc courses can be taken full or part-time. The full-time MSc lasts one year, the Postgraduate Diploma nine months, and the Postgraduate Certificate a minimum of five months. Part-time the courses can be taken over a period up to four years.
