Please Note:

In order to be eligible for the Service Management and Design (MSc) (fusion online), students need to obtain 180 SCQF level 11 credits.

The MSc must be completed within 3 years.

Across the 3 years of study, students must take the following:

a) 30 credits of programme compulsory core courses:

- Introduction to Service Management
- Introduction to Service Design
- Value and Value Creation

b) 40 credits of EFI Shared Core courses:

- Interdisciplinary Futures

- Ethical Data Futures
- Representing Data [OR] Building Near Futures

c) 50 credits of optional courses. These must include:

- A minimum of 20 credits of programme specific optional courses.
- Between 20-30 credits of EFI portfolio optional courses.

d) 60 credits of programme core final project courses:

- Knowledge Integration and Project Planning: Service Management and Design

The programme compulsory core courses and the shared core courses introduce students to skills and concepts that will assist them when studying optional courses and the final project. Therefore, we encourage students to take the three programme compulsory core courses, along with as many of the shared core courses as possible, during year one.

We would reco mmend that you aim to balance your course credits across the 3 years evenly. This is to ensure student workload is balanced. However, we appreciate that this may not always be possible (or preferrable) for part-time students.

All taught courses must be taken before the MSc final project. Please refer to the EFI Postgraduate Programme Handbook for further information.

There are no compulsory courses in this year of this programme.
