This is a highly intensive full-time programme of study. Students attend classes in college for two days each week, with the remaining three days needed for directed and independent study.  It is not possible to approach the course as part-time study as students are expected to be available for classes, industry talks, tutorials and external activities Monday-Friday.

The programme is structured as four ten-week terms. The first three are taught and the final term is for independent study to complete the final thesis.

The MA is an internationally recognised qualification validated by the University of Buckingham, worth 180 credits at QCF level 7.
