Postgraduate Modules 2018/19

All MSc programmes taught in the King's Russia Institute require students to take two core taught modules (one worth 40 credits and one worth 20 credits), a compulsory dissertation (worth 60 credits), disciplinary and optional modules (remaining 60 credits). Students thus accumulate the necessary 180 credits to pass the degree.

Part-time students are expected to take at least both taught core modules in year 1, and the Dissertation module and the remaining modules in year 2, however it can be individually discussed. We encourage you to take additional modules in year 1 along with the core modules in order to balance the workload across two years.
