Join with University of Essex Online course admission in UK, 2017

Application is online from February 2017

Application starts in February 2017

Studying online gives you the freedom to study when and where it suits you – at home, during your lunch hour or anywhere else you have internet access.

All of our online courses have an indicative study duration which is a guide to how long your course will take to complete. The actual duration may be longer or shorter depending on your speed of study, study options chosen and module availability. It’s possible to complete your studies faster than the indicative course duration by doubling up on modules at certain times; however, minimum study durations do apply.

All of our courses have regular start dates throughout the year. Our academic year is organised into modules, typically with a one- or two-week break between modules and a structured three-week break for the Christmas period. Students will receive a course timetable during the application process.

Teaching methods and style

As we are a 100% online university, we utilise a virtual learning environment instead of a traditional campus. The system tracks and manages the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials.

This learning platform allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and you can listen to, and view, live lectures and seminars over the internet. All courses are delivered in English only.

You are supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor. To ensure you receive the support you need from your tutor, we cap our class sizes at 20 students.

Assessment

Our MSc Business and Management course includes both compulsory and optional modules, so you can tailor the content of your course to more closely fit your interests and aspirations.

We adopt an assignment-based approach to assessment instead of exams. Assessment for the MSc Business and Management is based on a combination of written coursework and work on a dissertation or individual project.

At the end of your studies, you submit a 3,500-4,500 Research Proposal followed by a 13,000-15,000 word Management Report.

You are able to see your current provisional marks from the start of the programme, allowing you to evaluate the success of your current study methods and clearly identify areas to improve. We believe that this transparency gives you the information you need to make the most of your Masters course. We achieve this by:

showing your marks clearly in your gradebook, which can be viewed whenever you log onto the learning platform

the rapid turnaround of work assessed to ensure that your gradebook is always up to date

assessing your work throughout the module rather than waiting for end of year exams

ensuring you have regular contact with your Student Adviser

the simplicity and transparency in the design of our assessment criteria

We also have a policy of ensuring that work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well-established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.

On successful completion of your MSc Business and Management degree, you will be invited to attend a graduation ceremony at the University of Essex, Colchester Campus.

Career prospects

We are dedicated to improving employability amongst our graduates. Our online courses give you the opportunity to improve your career prospects and earning potential with a mix of key skills that are directly transferable to the workplace.

A postgraduate qualification is a major achievement and greatly valued by employers. Recent surveys show that higher degree graduates are more likely to obtain jobs at professional or managerial level and less likely to be unemployed. For some jobs, a postgraduate qualification may be essential, for others it offers a competitive edge.

As companies seek out the business managers with the most advanced skills to respond to changes in the economy and marketplace, a Masters degree in business and management could give you the competitive edge you need to advance to these upper level positions.

The specialist knowledge and understanding you gain could open up rewarding careers in business management, banking, insurance, accountancy, finance, marketing, sales, retail and human resources. You will also be well equipped to start your own businesses or work as an independent consultant in the future.
