The course is run on a part-time basis by The Management Centre. Classes are delivered via ‘blended learning’. Blended Learning is a unique combination of face-to-face teaching, on-line seminars and tutorials. Designed to making life easier for busy professionals, it minimises time away from the office and has less impact on the day to day operation of the business and the students’ working day. The course is structured to allow students flexibility in choosing the number of papers they wish to sit at each examination sitting.
Course content is for guidance purposes only and may be subject to change.

When to apply
The University will accept applications throughout the year, but we would generally advise that you send in your application form by the end of June to ensure that you have time to make any funding and/or accommodation arrangements, and for documents such as transcripts and references to be obtained if not submitted with the application. This will also give you more time to meet any conditions we may potentially attach to an offer. If you are making an application for one of our professional courses, which has limited place availability, you are advised to contact the academic school for advice on the final dates for applications.
