The second year makes provision for more specialized study in the topic area identified in each programme’s title with the opportunity of further specialization through the pursuit of a dissertation (for an MA) or for early exit on completion of coursework (for a Postgraduate Diploma).
Studied part-time over a minimum of four years and a maximum of 6 years. The award of a doctorate requires the presentation of an 80,000 word thesis based on a piece of individually-supervised research.
