Special intakes to help you ease into your Masters.

Please note that the updated 2020 information for this page can be found here.

We know it’s not easy trying to combine a busy work, family and social life, so we have created special year-round intakes that will help to support you as you start a Masters. This is ideal for people new to postgraduate study, or returning after a break. You’ll start with a single subject. Then once you’ve handed in an assessment or two and settled back in to ‘study mode’, you’ll take on a second subject. A dedicated IT Masters staff member will be on hand to provide extra guidance as you learn the ropes, so you can jump confidently into the rest of your degree.

You can start in any of the six intakes, with subjects on offer from across all of our degrees.

When are the new terms?
The new terms will start on 21 January, 20 May and 9 September 2019. This means, including the regular sessions, that there will be 6 opportunities to start in 2019: January, March, May, July, September and November.
I’m a current student, can I enrol in these extra terms?
The six session pilot is currently limited to new students only. If the pilot continues beyond 2019, current students may be able to enrol in the extra sessions.
Can I fast-track my course by studying in these extra terms?
It is possible to complete your course faster by starting a subject in the new sessions, but there may be some overlap between extra terms and regular sessions if you choose to enrol in two sessions at once. We recommend that every student in the pilot terms creates an individual enrolment plan with IT Masters. Please note that these extra terms are available to new students only. Students who have already started a course at IT Masters cannot enrol in these terms at this pilot stage.
How many subjects can I take in these extra terms?
We recommend students take one subject during the extra terms. This is because there may be some overlap between sessions as you merge back into the main sessions.
Will there be overlap between subjects?
Students who start in these new intakes (201915 / 201945 / 201975) will then need to take some subjects in the regular sessions (201930 / 201960 / 201990). This means that you might be taking classes from the start of one session during the end of another session. For this reason, we encourage students to take a single subject during the new terms, and to talk to us about your course plan.
To which courses does this apply?
 All IT Masters courses will be participating in this trial:

Fun Fact: The “Term” numbers are in a different order to the Session numbers for a quirky administrative reason. “Term 1” is in September as these are international terms, based on Northern Hemisphere dates, where the year starts in autumn.
