Master

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 is a graduate-level academic program that takes about two years beyond a bachelor’s degree to receive. Master’s are offered in many different specialties, and depending on the school, they may also be offered online or in person. Earning a Master may lead to increased job opportunities for graduates.
