Students will be allowed the flexibility of taking the dissertation option which is equivalent to four graduate level modules (16 modular credits). Students will need to complete six graduate level modules, with at least three modules from the area of specialisation (24 modular credits).
The dissertation option gives individual students the opportunity for independent study and research in the area of their selected specialisation. This will be carried out under the supervision of an academic staff, and the selection of the topic/area will be done in consultation with the supervisor in the area of expertise.
