Turn your PGC qualification into an MA or MBA

Mountbatten has developed a new set of exciting learning opportunities in collaboration with the University of Chester which enables our alumni to “top up” their current PGC to an MA or an MBA. This is a unique opportunity focused on work-based learning, enhancing your performance within your current workplace.

In our experience, work-based learning (WBL) offers more value than traditional educational programmes. With WBL, the workplace becomes the classroom and all learning is embedded in, and through job roles and workplace activities. The purpose is to address the needs of both employees and employers by developing a range of ‘soft’ or ‘transferable’ skills such as communication, adaptability, problem-solving, team working, and time management.

Our programs are divided into discrete and relevant modules, including entrepreneurial management, business strategy, digital business and new technology and practical marketing communications. Work-Based Projects are integrated into our programmes and will assist employees to develop their analytical, critical thinking and decision-making skills.

If you have completed a PGC with us, you would have gained 60 credits (20 per module), some of which may now count against the 180 credits required for an MA or MBA. You can, as an alumni, also start the programme afresh as long as you have not previously comeplted the MA programme with us.

Study options allow you to tailor your learning schedule utilizing our London based lecture series, participating in our any-time any-where on line learning, or blending both methods.

The MA and MBA both consists of 180 credits. You can transfer up to 40 credits through APCL from your Mountbatten PGC, subject to it being awarded within the last 5 years. You can also gain cred

its through APEL. APEL is an Accreditation of Prior Experiential Learning – learning achieved through experience, rather than on a formal course. The onus is on you to prove that your learning and experience matches the area for which exemption is claimed. Mountbatten will help you to determine how much of your prior learning can be credited against the MA or the MBA programme. Your remaining credits must be made up from modules.

If you are self-funding all or part of your studies, you must ensure that you pay your full fees before, or at enrolment. Sponsored students are ultimately liable for payment of their fees and must ensure their sponsors pay promptly.

If you are a UK citizen you may be eligible for the Master’s loan if you complete all 180 credits afresh: https://www.gov.uk/masters-loan/eligibility
