Course programme


The flexible nature of the programme allows you to study towards one of three levels of qualifications:

Year 1 (Certificate Stage)

  • Project Management Essentials 1
  • Organisations and People
  • Project Planning and Control
  • Budgets & Financial Control

Year 2 (Diploma Stage)

  • Project Management Essentials 2
  • Commercial and Contractual Issues
  • Quality and Risk Management
  • Group Project

Year 3 (MSc Stage)

  • Portfolio Project Management
  • Managing Project Teams
  • Dissertation in Project Management

Each level acts as a pre-requisite for the next and takes one year to complete (i.e. Certificate = 1 year of study, Diploma = 2 years of study, MSc = 3 years of study). Students who reach the end of a year of study have the option of graduating with the qualification reached or continuing into the next year of study to enhance their qualification to the next level.


The modules are assessed by a combination of coursework and written examination, with some modules being entirely assessed through coursework. On-campus submission is either by email or in person at teaching sessions. Each module has a timetable which details when the coursework is due and when the exam is scheduled to take place. Campus based students are able to take their examinations at the University.
