This fact, together with the ever-increasing demand for blended e-learning provision in this subject area, ensures strong interest in this MSc programme. The first sixteen-week stage of the Postgraduate Certificate, commencing in January, starts with the module Construction Management Skills. This first module allows plenty of time to acclimatise to the electronic system of teaching and learning as well as the subject matter itself. The residential conference takes place towards the end of this module and contributes, in part, to the module's assessment strategy. The remaining two modules, Contemporary Procurement Issues and Risk Assessment and Management, will occupy the rest of your time at the PGCert stage again, each module has a notional timescale of sixteen weeks so this means that the three modules are planned to be completed in 48 weeks, giving you a 'buffer' of four weeks in the twelve-month period. The PGDip stage of the programme will then commence with a further twelve-month timescale designed to the same model. Following the PGDip stage, the MSc stage can be completed in a further 26 weeks with the Dissertation together with Research Methods.
