MA/PG Diploma/PG Certificate in Career Development and Coaching Studies (CDCS)

This MA meets international and national quality benchmarks and is suitable for you if you have either a personal or professional interest in career development/coaching.

We offer the MA full-time, or you can choose to complete the programme part-time at different levels. You’ll be encouraged to directly connect your learning to your personal and continuing professional development. Each module on the course is taught through a mix of workshop-based (usually two days) and distance learning. You can choose from two to six workshops a year, depending on your preferred study route.

While our academic admissions criteria ask for a 2:ii undergraduate degree, we would welcome and encourage you to apply if you have alternative qualifications or experience. The skills you develop on the course will support current or future employment in career coaching and talent management, among other vocational roles.
