MSc. Information and Technology
MSc Information and Technology award facilitates the option to negotiate and design an individual programme of study (IPoS). This flexible approach to learning increases opportunities for adult learners to control the pace, location and content of their learning in accordance with professional goals and in response to changes in their needs and circumstances.
The Course enables students to build qualifications using the modules and expertise in the School and a variety of delivery modules may be selected. The core modules are identified as: the Dissertation/Project , the Research Practice module and the Project Management.
The MSc Information and Technology is specifically designed to bring together four general principles to which the university is particularly committed:
- Widening Access to and Participation in Higher Education
- Continuing Education and Lifelong Learning
- Accreditation of Experiential Learning
- Personal and Professional Development
MSc Information and Technology has evolved over the past few years as a popular award. This award gives a good opportunity for students to build their own study path and is attractive to the home market where professionals seek further development and training with accreditation. Previously students accessed this award when they wished to change from their originally chosen award, but more recently students have specifically enrolled on this award at the beginning of their studies. Also, recently the overseas market has found Information and Technology very attractive and different governments have created sponsors schemes for this award.
This may not be a permanent changes in other governments sponsor schemes may have a direct impact on student numbers in the future. The flexibility of the course and the range of module options available to the students means that home students will have to plan their private and professional lives once they have made their module choices.
