Creating a postgraduate master’s course - Course duration

Part-time English courses


Part-time course durations for English domiciled students remain as they were in academic year 2017/18.

You can set up a part-time postgraduate master’s course for these students with a duration of 1 or 2 years full time equivalent. You can also set it up with 2 or 3 years fixed duration if there is no full-time equivalent course. 

The courses can be studied as follows:

  • part-time courses with a duration of 1 year full time equivalent – will be studied over 2 years
  • part-time courses with a duration of 2 years full time equivalent – will be studied over 3 or 4 years
  • part-time courses with a duration of 2 years no full time equivalent – will be studied over 2 years
  • part-time courses with a duration of 3 years no full time equivalent – will be studied over 3 years
