For those looking to update their professional skills, specialise in a particular area, or see if distance learning is right for them without the commitment of a full programme, an Individual Professional Award (IPA) is the perfect option.

The IPA programme enables you to study up to three modules from any of the distance learning programmes that we offer, allowing you to focus on one or two subject areas relevant to your profession or interests.

IPA graduates will be awarded a University of London certificate, and will then have the option of extending their IPA into a Postgraduate Diploma or Masters programme, providing they have achieved a pass mark of 50% or more on modules already taken that are relevant to the subsequent PG Dip or Masters.

Assessment

For each module that you choose to study, you will complete two assignments each worth 15% of your total marks. You will be expected to submit your first assignment by the Tuesday of Week 5, and the second assignment at the end of the module, on the Tuesday of Week 8. You will also sit a three-hour examination held on a specific date in October, worth 70% of the total mark.
