Course Content

All courses start on Monday 5th October 2015.

Course structure

The course is modular - each student takes a combination of core and elective modules. 10 modules are studied and assessed in total. Modules consist of nominally 40 hours directed tuition in the form of lectures, seminars, group work, presentations, case studies and e-learning. This is covered in a full-immersion, intensive week.
The taught modules account for 50% of the Master's degree. A major individual research project, submitted in the form of a dissertation accounts for the other 50%.

Modules

Between 7 and 9 core modules are specified for each of the MSc courses and these modules are compulsory. The core modules for each course are listed on the relevant course pages.

In addition to the core modules you can choose additional elective modules from an extensive list to make up to 10 modules for the course. There are a range of elective modules available, focussed on management, business, technology and other subject areas. And so you can choose your elective modules to tailor the degree to your interest and to support your future career aspirations.

Assessment

The course is assessed through Post Module Assignments and a major research project.

Post Module Assignments (PMA)

At the end of every module you will be given a post module assignment (PMA). This is a piece of assessed, written work which enables you to delve more deeply into the subject area of the module. It should take you 40-60 hours to complete and the submission deadline is four weeks after the end of the module.

Project and Dissertation

Throughout the year, alongside your modules and PMA’s, you will undertake a major individual research project which you then submit in the form of a dissertation at the end of August, followed by an oral exam where your Project Supervisor and an independent supervisor will discuss your project with you.

You do not need to choose your project in advance. At the beginning of your MSc course, you will be provided with a wide range of project titles which you can choose from. Many projects relate closely to research developments in industry or research at WMG.

The project accounts for 50% of MSc grade and through choosing a project suited to your interest and future career aspirations, this another great way to tailor your degree.

Industry Relevance

WMG work closely with industry to ensure their course content is up to date and that what is being taught to students and the teaching methods used are relevant to today’s industry needs. Our courses are taught by academic staff with backgrounds in industry who are supported by visiting lecturers currently working in senior positions in industry. You will also have regular opportunities to go out on day trips to industry, visiting the sites of well-known companies to experience in practice the theory of what you learning and see how it is applied in industry.

English Language Requirements

IELTS take IELTS test
6.5

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
