These courses are designed for busy working people – and ideal for serving and former Forces personnel.

You choose what you study based on your personal and professional aspirations, and your learning is built around work projects.

In many cases, you can use training and experience from your military service as credit towards a qualification, helping you complete your studies more quickly.

● MA Business Management
● MSc Engineering
● MSc Engineering and Management
