Master of Science (MSc)

A Master of Science degree (MSc) is a degree awarded at universities around the world after completion of graduate-level study in a related field. Master of Science candidates normally do independent research and present a thesis as a requirement for graduation.

The knowledge gained during this programme, in the subject area of choice, will prepare students for tackling real world challenges, providing solutions to complex problems, and, if possible, creating products that will benefit society.

A Master of Science degree provides a postgraduate degree, a scientific, technical or professional entry level competence. Many working professionals enrol on online Master of Science programmes to help secure professional advancement.

To obtain a (MSc) masters degree you need to have done enough work to add up to 180 credits in total, any less than this, and you are not eligible to be awarded one. Some are merely given a pass or fail, but commonly taught master’s degree grades are fail, pass, merit (or credit) and distinction. The boundaries for this are usually 50% for a pass, 60% for a merit and 70% for a distinction.
