The content of our courses is reviewed annually to make sure it's up-to-date and relevant. Individual modules are occasionally updated or withdrawn. This is in response to discoveries through our world-leading research; funding changes; professional accreditation requirements; student or employer feedback; outcomes of reviews; and variations in staff or student numbers. In the event of any change we'll consult and inform students in good time and take reasonable steps to minimise disruption. We are no longer offering unrestricted module choice. If your course included unrestricted modules, your department will provide a list of modules from their own and other subject areas that you can choose from.


The learning and teaching sessions include, tutorials, lectures, business case analyses, problem analyses, student presentations and talks by visiting guest lecturers from industry.

Private study is also an important part of your development and you'll be expected to prepare for tutorials and assessments.
