This programme combines the core element of the MA Development Studies with a combination of options which could include the development management and research modules, or options such as gender and development or rural development.
The programme also includes modules in education, specialising in various aspects of international educational management. The dissertation for the MA programme is a critical study in education and development.
Progression rules for all POLIS MA programmes
1) Proceed to dissertation:
Students can proceed straight to dissertation if a pass at 50% or above is achieved in a minimum of 90 credits (including all compulsory modules for that programme) AND if they have an overall credit weighted average of at least 50%. If there are any failed modules then one re-sit opportunity per failed module will be offered.
2) Proceed to dissertation suspended until 1) achieved:
Students who achieve 50% or above in a minimum of 60 but fewer than 90 credits will be suspended from progressing to dissertation until after their re-sits have been taken and the criteria in 1) have been achieved. Once the student has achieved the criteria in 1) they will be allowed to progress to project at the next available opportunity which is usually in the next academic year.
3) Cannot proceed to dissertation or MA, re-registered on PG Diploma:
Students will not be allowed to proceed to dissertation or the MA, and will subsequently be re-registered on the PGDip if a pass at 50% or above is achieved in fewer than 60 credits. There will be one re-sit opportunity offered for each failed module for a maximum award of a PGDiploma to be obtained.
