Curriculum Overview


Programme Structure


The programme uses a blended approach to teaching and learning so that employment and other demands can be better accommodated. We use a comprehensive range of face to face and online teaching and learning methods, each tailored to the current area of study.

Student-centred learning is pivotal to our philosophy, and our teaching and support methods encourage self-development and awareness through reflection on experience. We utilise practitioners, researchers and lecturers to deliver high-quality research-based teaching.

The programme will consist of six 15-credit modules and one 30-credit project, designed to be completed by a student studying part-time over two years. Face to face classes in Singapore will be delivered in one intensive block per module. Each block normally consists of two weekday evenings, Saturday and Sunday.

Core Modules:

  • Research methods, critical appraisal and statistics
