Course Content


  • Our Project Management course is an ideal option for those looking to top up their qualification to a complete BSc (Hons). While this undergraduate degree is relevant to aspiring Project Managers, it also provides the knowledge and skills that can be applied to a wide range of job roles in multiple sectors.

    The Project Management Top-Up BSc (Hons) programme benefits from two principal points of differentiation. First, it is sector-neutral, focusing on the application of project management methodologies to multiple sectors whilst drawing examples from a range of contexts. Second, a clear focus on individual and organisational responsibility is embedded throughout the course.

  • Why is Project Management important?

    Project Management is key for setting realistic expectations for project delivery and ensuring project objectives are met, including budgets and timelines.

    Achieving this requires the application of certain Project Management skills, techniques, tools and knowledge to control costs, maximise resources, and manage integration, quality and change. Those in Project Management roles are responsible for defining plans, establishing schedules and overseeing teamwork. For successful completion, a Project Manager must also be resilient, retaining knowledge and learning from failure.

    What are Project Management skills?

    The Project Management skills required to drive success are broad and can be applied to a wide range of different roles, organisations and industries.

    In addition to managing projects through to completion, Project Management skills include planning from the conception stage through to implementation, mapping out a timeline to achieve this and then executing the phases involved. They also include managing resources and effectively overcoming any issues, while communicating clearly with stakeholders.

    Those wishing to succeed in Project Management jobs must be strong leaders and be highly organised, resourceful and detail-orientated. They should have a good business acumen and an appreciation for how the project relates to the organisation’s overall business goals.

  • You will be eligible to apply for this Project Management course if you hold an Edexcel / SQA, HND, a relevant Foundation Degree, Advanced Diploma, or Chinese Dazhuan Diploma. We will consider International Students whose first language is not English.
