The MSc Public Policy and Management programme is designed to assist both existing development professionals and people moving into the field of policy and management.
As a graduate of this programme you will be well prepared for high positions in government, public service, international organisations and NGOs. Politicians, both national and local, in various countries are already studying with the programme.
What qualifications do you need?
You will need either a bachelor degree in a relevant discipline (e.g. finance, economics) from an institution acceptable to the University or relevant education and work experience that comprises suitable training for the programme.
If you have a qualification in an unrelated subject or an international qualification considered equivalent to a bachelor’s degree, we will consider these on their own merits.
English Language requirements
If your first degree was not taught in English, you will need to provide evidence of language ability as tested by the British Council or another registered body. This is equivalent to a score of 7.0 overall in the iELTS test, or 7.0 in both reading and writing.
We set minimum basic computer requirements because your study resources are accessed via the Student Portal and it is vital that you can access this regularly. Certain courses may have additional requirements, such as software to manage spreadsheets and run macros.
The fees below apply if you begin during the 2017-2018 session. These may be increased by up to 5% per year.
You will also need to budget for exam centre fees, which are paid directly to the venues where you sit your exams, and any customs duties or taxes payable on educational materials (e.g. USB/CDs).
