In order to successfully obtain a Masters qualification, you will need to obtain a number of credits by passing individual modules. Most taught Masters will have a number of core modules which you must take and pass in order to obtain the qualification. The assessment of research Masters is almost always entirely by a single dissertation module or project.

A Master, which takes one to two years of schooling to receive, may help students improve their professional skills and gain knowledge in their chosen field. This improvement in skills and knowledge may lead to a highly skilled career with opportunities for advancement.
