How it Works and FAQs

How long does the course take?

The Masters is a twelve-month programme, starting each year in November.

How easy is it to combine the Masters with full time employment?

The programme is specifically designed to fit around busy working lives, with an induction day at Solent University, a total of eight days of workshops in Central London, and virtual follow-up sessions and sessions delivered by guest speakers. Where circumstances prevent in-person attendance, hybrid options will be made available. 

You will need to devote a considerable amount of time to reading, critical analysis of issues, research, preparation of assignments and participation in on-line discussion boards. The theory into practice approach and focus on your current workplace in assessments means that that you can achieve a level of integration between work and study.

How will I be assessed?

Assessment is via coursework rather than exams, and includes assignments, a management report, and assessment of on-line discussion of key topics. All assessments focus on current workplace issues.

What is the entry criteria?

You will need either a postgraduate qualification in management and business, OR a degree or professional qualification plus significant internal communication experience, OR substantial relevant experience plus evidence of achievement. You can find out more about the entry criteria here, or you can contact us on [email protected] if you want to discuss your eligibility. 

How much does it cost?

The fee to study for the Masters in Internal Communication Management is £6,500 + VAT.

All students will receive 12 months of free IoIC membership as part of the course fees as well as access to the Solent University online library where they can access all required texts and resources. 

What does the fee include?

The cost of the programme includes workshops, follow-up sessions, access to Solent University’s online library and virtual learning environment, ongoing support from the course team, supervision of management reports, one year of IoIC membership and graduation at Solent University (there will be some additional costs for graduation gowns and additional tickets to the graduation ceremony).

Are there payment options available to split the cost?

If your employer is willing to sponsor your place on the programme, payment can be made in full or over two financial years. Our professional development team can support you in outlining the benefits of gaining the Masters to your organisation if required.

If you're self or part funding, we are happy to work with you and devise a payment plan (subject to agreement in writing and terms and conditions), allowing students to pay for their place on the course in instalments. 

If you have any questions about the programme fees or would like to speak about the most suitable option for you, please email [email protected]
