We also offer a wide range of full-time and part-time taught postgraduate programmes, with dedicated efforts from our Departments in driving forward the ongoing developments of its taught curriculum. The taught programmes operate on a semester system, and candidates' academic progress is normally assessed by a combination of written examinations and project assignments throughout the year, as well as a dissertation which will constitute a significant portion of the work of the degree.
