Description

Do you want to boost your career prospects by studying for a Master’s degree alongside your current job?

Whether you’re currently in a career which covers a breadth of subjects or you want to develop a range of transferable skills for your future career aspirations, our Professional Studies Learning at Work Master’s course can help you fulfil your professional and personal development ambitions.

We currently offer both an MA or MSc Professional Studies. If the majority of your learning is science-based, the MSc is for you. If your learning is predominantly in art-based subjects, we recommend the MA.

Because the course is work-based, you need to already be in a full-time, part-time or voluntary role. If you don’t have an undergraduate degree, you could still do this postgraduate course if you have several years experience in a responsible position (such as a military role) or you have high-level skills through experience that isn’t reflected in your qualifications.

You can tailor the course to match your professional and personal aspirations and your employer’s objectives. The way you learn is flexible, so you can study wherever is most convenient for you and schedule your studies around your existing commitments.
