What opportunities might it lead to?

Our Partnership Programme courses cannot be accredited by professional institutions, because the content of each Learning Contract is unique. Some institutions have agreed to give approval in advance for individual Learning Contracts in regards to whether your chosen pathway satisfies the academic requirements for professional registration.

Contents

The time you take to complete your studies is up to you and is not tied to the academic calendar. It depends on the point at which you start the course and your personal circumstances at work and at home.
You will choose your proposed award title according to the subject material you plan to include in your studies. You must, however, choose one of the award titles from this list:

MA

* Business Management
* Business and Computer Studies
* Combined Studies*

MSc

* Applied Computing
* Applied Science
* Combined Studies*
* Engineering
* Engineering and Management
* Engineering Project Management
* Maritime Studies
* Occupational Health and Safety Management

*Combined Studies is the award for students whose work is not covered by any of the others.
Here are the units you will study:

* Accredited Prior Learning (APL): This allows you to receive credit for the qualifications you already have and for experience that has given you the learning equivalent to academic qualifications. This can include in-service training courses and qualifications, as well as learning from on-the-job experience. To claim credit for experiential learning you have to submit a portfolio of evidence matching your knowledge and skills to units in the University's Taught Units Database. The maximum APL credit you can receive is two thirds of the credit for the award. Prior Learning Portfolios should be submitted as soon as possible, to allow time for assessment before registration.
* Learning Management: This is a credit-rated unit. It is the linking thread for your studies. In this unit, you will write a learning contract and amend it as necessary if circumstances change. You will work to the contract plan and deliver your evidence (reports, reviews or other items) on the dates you have specified.
* Work-based Learning Projects: These usually make up the bulk of the learning contract. They must involve new learning for you, so they cannot be simply the activities involved in your regular job. However, they should be of value to your employer as well as yourself and you should be able to carry out much of the project work in normal working hours.
* Taught Units: Units from the University of Portsmouth or other higher education institutions can be included in your programme. They are a good way of acquiring new knowledge in a structured way. They are delivered as part of the University's normal teaching provision and are not run by the Partnership Programme.

Teaching and Assessment

You will set your own learning objectives, course content and timetable. It is compulsory that some of your learning is via work-based learning projects while taught units and other training programmes provide additional and supported learning.

How are you assessed?

We set the framework for your degree and assess your work, but you choose what to learn, how you will learn and what evidence you will deliver for assessment. We ensure that you achieve the standard appropriate to your award through a process of learning management.

Requirements

A degree or equivalent. Other qualifications such as HNDs and Foundation degrees, supported by several years of relevant post-qualification experience in responsible posts, may also be acceptable. Applicants are usually working at a professional level.

English language proficiency at a minimum of IELTS band 6.0 with no component less than 5.5
