Improve your qualifications whilst in employment

WMG – University of Warwick



The WMG 3-year part-time Master’s degree remains the most popular programme, with 7 subject streams available. For those not wishing to commit to the full period of study at this time, or for those who simply want to improve their knowledge in certain areas, WMG offers all of the Master’s-level modules as short courses. These can be taken individually, or in multiples to gain a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Award in your chosen stream. WMG firmly believes n practical learning and not lectures alone. You should expect to participate in group work, exercises and simulations as well as learning from the experiences of visiting speakers from a range of industries. With variable start dates throughout the year and the flexibility to allow you to tailor your programme to your current needs and also take into account past work and educational experience, WMG prides itself on being able to offer a programme to suit both you and your employer.


If you have professional experience but no degree, then the post-experience programmes can be a route into higher education*. The 18-month Master’s Foundation Programme will kickstart your management education and successful completion enables you to enrol on any of the Master’s degree streams. The Foundation modules can also be taken individually to boost the skills of your team or to pick up the latest thinking on a specific area of the management skillset.


The pioneering part-time Undergraduate degree, the WMG Applied Engineering Programme allows participants to study for a Bachelor’s in Engineering while in full-time employment or as part of a Higher Apprenticeship. Successful participants will be awarded an accredited BEng degree in Applied Engineering from the University of Warwick. The Applied Engineering Programme is for employees of engineering and technology-led companies who do not possess a university degree. Employees may come from any area of the company and may be of any age; from those who have already completed standard apprenticeship schemes, those part-way through their Higher Apprenticeship, to more experienced staff looking to further develop their engineering skills and add value to their company.
