LEC Masters Now Available Part Time
The masters programmes (except currently the MSc in Management and the Environment) offered by the Lancaster Environment Centre are available for study on a part time basis as well as full time. Part-time schemes are flexible and would typically run over 18 months to two years.
For example, a student might take four taught modules in the first year, and complete the practical component of their project in the first summer. They would then complete their final two taught modules and project writing during the second year, finishing in March or August.
Students on a part-time programme will need to commit at least one day a week to attending the taught modules. This may be a whole day, as some of the modules are taught on one day a week over five weeks, or could be two or three half-days, as some modules are taught over two or three sessions per week over five weeks. A degree of flexibility is beneficial and will increase the module choice. Students also need to set aside around 15 hours a week for independent study, such as reading, coursework, and exam preparation.
Extra consideration needs to be given to planning the project, which accounts for 50% of the marks. Some applicants may be able to undertake a project within their workplace with the agreement of an academic supervisor. For others, blocks of time may be needed to carry out the research, for example, in the field or laboratory.
Applicants choosing to study part-time need to be clear about why they are choosing this option and should be able to demonstrate that the part-time route can be managed alongside other commitments, such as work or family.
Finally, all applications for part-time study will be considered on an individual basis and will require an informal interview to discuss the course.
