This module is suitable for you if you have experience of working on projects, possibly as a team member, and you do not need to have worked on all phases of the project lifecycle.
If you have not worked on projects you need to have experience of working in organisations and be able to relate your experience to projects.
You would benefit from already having some awareness of project management processes, although you do not need to be a practising project manager. In the assessment you will need to reflect on project work that you have done and be able to relate the tools and techniques presented in the module to a project, or a situation within a project, within your experience.
This is a postgraduate module and you will need to be able to demonstrate in the assessment that you can analyse and evaluate situations and theories and communicate at the appropriate level. Guidance on postgraduate study skills is given. If you are new to postgraduate study, or returning to study after a gap you are likely to need more time to study the module.
Your spoken and written English must be of an adequate standard for postgraduate study. If English is not your first language, we recommend that you will need a minimum overall score of 6 and minimum score of 5.5 in each of the four components: reading, writing, speaking and listening under the International English Language Testing System (IELTS). Please see the IELTS website for details.
If you have any doubt about the suitability of the module, please speak to an adviser.
