To satisfy the requirements of the degree programme students must complete eight core courses and five elective courses. They must also complete a Dissertation. Students are also expected to follow the Induction programme.
The full-time course runs for 12 months from mid-September. The taught component is arranged over three terms and then students work on their dissertation.
Two-year part-time course
The part-time course runs over two academic years and typically involves an afternoon session and an evening session each week. The two-year option is open only to students with commercial experience in risk management or insurance. The general structure is similar to the one-year full-time course but tuition is spread over two years with students normally taking only two courses each term rather than four.
Our graduates enjoy senior positions across the world in many types of businesses including international insurance, reinsurance and insurance broking firms, Lloyd's of London, leading investment and retail banks, leading accountancy firms, management consultancies, risk management departments of major corporations, regulatory authorities and many other fields.
