A Masters is a research degree. It consists of two parts and is normally completed in two calendar years. Part 1 (the first year) involves three courses of 30 points each and a research preparation course. Part 2 (the second year) is a full-time research project, leading to a thesis. Prospective students must also agree a thesis topic with a supervisor before enrolment in the programme.
