MPA: Part-Time Option

Our MPA programmes are also available as two-year part-time programmes. This involves completing 180 credits of study across two academic years (90 credits of study per academic year). The indicative programme for 2018-19 and 2019-20 is as follows;

Year 1 - Term 1

  • STEPGP01 - Introduction to Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (60 credits)**

Year 1 - Term 2

  • STEPGP05 - Evidence Institutions and Power (15 credits)

Year 1 - Term 3

  • STEPGP06 - Analytic Methods for Policy (15 credits)

Year 2 - Term 1

  • Any UCL PGT Elective (15 credits)

Year 2 - Term 2

  • STEPGPXX - STEaPP Elective (15 credits)
  • STEPGPXX - Route Specific Module (15 credits) / UCL/STEaPP Elective (if on general MPA Route) 

Year 2 - Term 2/3 Onward

  • STEPGP99 - MPA Group Project (45 credits)

**Due to the intensive structure/mode of delivery of the main 60-credit core module for the MPA programme(s), full-time attendance for the first term is required for all students (both full-time and part-time). As such, this module requires full-time commitment for its duration from the beginning of October to the middle of December. After the first term is complete, part-time students reduce their commitment to around 3-6hrs per week of contact during each term for the remainder of the programme.
