Our three Masters programmes may be studied part-time over two or three academic years. For the Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production programme we also offer a Postgraduate Diploma, which may be studied part-time over two years.
There are no part-time options for any of our Postgraduate Certificate programmes.
For the Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production programme we will not be enrolling part-time PG Dip students in 2014 as there may be changes to some modules for 2015. Students who complete the PG Cert or PG Dip in 2014 will be able to progress to the PG Dip or MSc in 2015 but will need to make this decision when the details of the 2015 programme have been finalised.
All Masters students leave the College at the end of their respective second term in order to work on their Dissertations. This is March/April for Holistic Science and Economics for Transition students, and July for Sustainable Horticulture and Food Production students. Students opting to study over three years, taking the Dissertation in the third year, will therefore not be required to be resident at the College or live locally for this Module.
The table below summarises the part-time pathways for each programme.
Fees will be due at the start of each term of study. Since our costs increase each year, we will provide indications of likely charges for part-time studies for individual students who enquire. Tuition and food/accommodation charges for 2013/14 are published on our Postgraduate fees page.
Normally a first degree is required for entry on to our postgraduate programmes. Please refer to the relevant programme for full details, as well as our admissions procedures, the course fees, and the application process.
