Students are normally required to complete 5 compulsory subjects in the first two semesters in the first year and a dissertation plus 2 electives or a field trip study (ISE550) plus 4 elective subjects in the two semesters in the second year. Each subject carries 3 credits with the exception of the dissertation which because of its nature and the amount of effort involved carries 9 credits. A student must accumulate a total of 30 credits that include a dissertation for the award of a Master's degree.
