Masters Degrees

The LDPRT has been awarded 120 credits at Level 7 by Middlesex University. As part of an Accreditation of Prior Educational Learning (APEL) process, you may have these weighted at the university of your choice for on-going studies. You therefore have flexibility in your choice of where to take a Masters Degree, should you wish to do so.

Candidates who successfully complete the programme will receive a Middlesex University Certificate of Credit that details the level and number of credits achieved. These credits may be transferred towards other courses at a university of your choice. The precise number of credits that can be counted towards another award will vary from university to university and is determined by the exact programme of study that you are applying for.

Specifically at Middlesex University:

  • 80 of these 120 credits will be calculated to progress to the Masters programme
    (Work Based Learning & Interprofessional Learning, School of Health and Education)
  • The remaining 100 credits will be gained through the Middx. system:
    • 10 credits for a programme planning module
    • 30 credits for a compulsory research methods module
    • 60 credits for your final dissertation.
