Creating a postgraduate master’s course - Course duration

Part-time Welsh courses, Creating a postgraduate master's course, Creating courses, CMS user guide | HEP Services


As of academic year 2018/19, you can set up part-time postgraduate master’s courses for Welsh domiciled students with a duration of 2, 3 or 4 years.

If a course has a full-time equivalent, you should enter the course duration as the duration of study in academic years, and not the full-time equivalent duration.

You should split your current master’s courses by domicile (England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland). For example, if a one-year full-time equivalent course is studied over 2 years, you should enter the course with a 2 year duration:

  • Enter part-time Welsh courses studied over 2 years as 2 years no full time equivalent
  • Enter part-time Welsh courses studied over 3 years as 3 years no full time equivalent
  • Enter part-time Welsh courses studied over 4 years as 4 years no full time equivalent

Since 2018/19 you have the option to select a 4-year duration for Welsh students.


Validation

CMS shows all duration options, but you cannot save a course with a 1 or 2 year full-time equivalent duration designated for Wales.

You will get an error message that you cannot save a course with this duration and Welsh designation.

Likewise, you cannot save a course with 4 years no full-time equivalent duration designated for England.
