Learning model and programme structure
Each of the Roehampton Online masters programs has been designed to help you move forward in your life and follows the same basic structure. Every online program is made up of seven modules and a research project. Every module lasts 10 weeks. You then have a break of approximately two weeks before resuming your studies. Your research project is much like a dissertation, in which all previous learning culminates in an academic research paper. Modules equate to 20 academic credits while your research project carries 40 credits – but you have 26 weeks to complete that part of your program.
The term “accreditation” is used differently in different education systems around the world. In the UK, universities have an accreditation status by virtue of degree-awarding powers (recognized bodies) through an Act of Parliament. Maintaining high academic standards is central to Roehampton’s vision. As a UK-based institution, the University complies with the academic standards set by the UK government’s Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA). These standards are the same for all programs — undergraduate, postgraduate and research-based — whether delivered online or on campus.
