Many of our students combine study and part-time work. This is why we work to consolidate the lectures and tutorial groups so that they are spread across 2 or 3 days, rather than all 5 weekdays. This may mean that – on the days on which you do have class – you are on campus for most of that day.
Full-time students will be in classes for approx. 3 days a week. We aim to organise teaching to allow part-time students to be in class 2 days a week (but this is dependent on the modules you choose).
So the exact days will depend … on the group you are assigned to (tutorial groups are kept small) and the module you choose.
We attract students from a range of backgrounds and we are constantly trying to make the programme as accessible as possible. This is especially important as some students who enrol are actually working in the publishing industry and use our MSc Publishing to progress further up the publishing ladder.
How flexible are the programmes?
MSc Publishing offers a number of module options in trimester 2 (there are currently no options for MSc Magazine Publishing).
The dissertation (both programmes, trimester 3) allows you to focus on an area of study personal and relevant to your interests and career needs. Likewise, the placement is organised with your professional aspirations in mind.
