Tuition Fees

Additional costs
Please note that for some programmes of study there may be additional costs involved which are not included in the tuition fee advertised. These could be, for example, for study materials, fields trips or equipment. Programme leaders will be able to provide detail of any additional costs.
This programme offers practical experience and will bring a global perspective to your studies. After successfully completing the Postgraduate Certificate stage of the Project Management programme or having entered with an equivalent qualification, you can study for a dual award with UWS and the University of Angers, France.
Applicants must normally possess the equivalent of a Postgraduate Certificate in Quality Management. Students with a degree, or an equivalent qualification or a lesser appropriate qualification, plus equivalent experience gained in industry are encouraged to apply for the MSc Quality Management and transfer to the International programme after the Postgraduate Certificate. This does not prolong the duration of studies.

Applicants must also have at least a Higher or equivalent in French. Further language support will be provided throughout the programme.

The programme is available to EU and overseas students (full-time only). Overseas students must meet UWS English language requirements.
The programme will equip you with expertise in project management, developing the skills to manage global projects, programmes and portfolios of projects.

Building on your existing technical knowledge, you will develop not only project management knowledge and skills but employability skills such as critical thinking, analysis, problemsolving, communication, team building, research, ICT skills and skills for lifelong learning.

This dual award is based on the Postgraduate Diploma Project Management at UWS but with an additional eight months spent at the University of Angers in France. At the end of the programme you will receive two Masters: MSc Project Management (International) from UWS; and MSc ISMP (Ingénierie des Systèmes et Management de Project) from University of Angers. Funding options are available for the period of study in France. Classes in France are taught in French but you can sit exams and assignments in English.
