This postgraduate degree course will enable you to explore project management in a wide range of contexts including long run public sector infrastructure projects and short-to-medium term projects in private sector businesses, public sector organisations and third sector (not-for-profit) organisations.
The course focuses on practical advanced concepts, processes and techniques required to manage projects within today’s complex and constantly changing knowledge and innovation driven business environment. The course content is balanced, with critical modules on research, leadership, law, innovation, change management and an understanding of the global project management environment. This applied, practical emphasis rather than an overtly academic or theoretical approach is pivotal because the project management function is required to deliver hard, measurable, results. Thus the course emphasises the synthesis of the practical and the theoretical and students will be required to identify, evaluate, develop and practice key project management skills.

Studying during COVID-19
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic all our students can choose to study face to face on campus or online only, and students are able to change their mode of delivery at given dates throughout the trimester.
For on campus teaching, we offer at least four hours of face to face teaching-related contact time per week for our undergraduate full-time programmes, supported by online learning using our established online learning systems. The number of contact hours varies course by course, and you can contact us for further information. The provision offered is subject to change due to the possibility of further Government restrictions, however the University remains committed to delivering face to face teaching and ensuring a COVID-19 secure environment.
In the event that there are further changes to the current restrictions that are in place within the UK due to the pandemic, we may need to move some courses online only at short notice to remain in line with Government guidelines and ensure the continued safety of our students and staff.
