You must take eight lecture modules assessed by written examinations and also undertake a written project of approximately 10,000 words on a subject of your choice.
Full-time students will normally be expected to take four modules in each semester and must complete the project by September.
Part-time students will normally be expected to take four modules in each year, and must complete the project by September of their final year.

Subject to Programme Director’s approval, you may take at most two level 6 modules.
You may be allowed to take up to 30 credits from MSc modules at another College of University of London provided that these have been approved by the Programme Director. Please ask the Programme Director for advice on the credit rating of modules from other Universities.
Any modules selected at other University of London institutions in the areas of Complex Systems and Financial Mathematics count towards the upper limit of three module choices in these areas.
The Modern Language Centre offers King’s postgraduate students the opportunity to take free assessed or non-assessed language modules. You can find details on the webpages of the Modern Language Centre.
In order to progress from year one to year two, a part-time student should have passed at least 45 credits (3 modules).
In order to progress to the project, you must meet one of the following criteria:
- at least 120 credits passed or
- at least 105 credits passed together with 15 credits at condoned fail level or
- at least 90 credits passed together with 30 credits at condoned fail level
