Technology (Maritime Operations) Masters (MSc): Learning agreement framework

How this course is delivered

A masters degree by learning agreement recognises the learning involved in completing work-based projects and awards learning that takes place at work. This allows you to be credited for what you are already learning and the contribution you are making to your organisation's success.

Each learning goal will have allocated points score associated with it. Successful completion of each learning goal will result in these points being awarded to you. A masters degree will be awarded when 180 points are accumulated. Of the 180 credits at the required level required for a master's degree, the majority of these credits, usually 120, will come from successful completion of the PWO course (and the training leading up to this course).

This points method of evaluating the value of student work is standard across the academic sector, and so provides a clear indication that work-based learning meets the criteria of a national standard.

Experience has shown that a large proportion of learning undertaken by working professionals holding a PWO qualification is at masters level. The majority of a Technology (Maritime Operations) MSc programme can therefore be constructed from a set of goals linked to the work activities of officers enrolling on the course, enabling each of them to have their own unique programme content.
