    This programme develops your understanding of the politics, principles, evidence and skills associated with public service commissioning and how these interact across organisational boundaries. It is designed for senior managers and policy-makers working in or with public commissioning organisations or with an interest in developing their careers in this direction.


    The normal admission requirement for our other taught postgraduate programmes is a good first degree or an equivalent professional qualification. Subject to interview (and sometimes to a special test) candidates without a first degree may be admitted. Candidates without such qualifications who wish to complete an MSc may initially be registered for a Graduate Certificate/Diploma, and then, subject to satisfactory performance, their registration will be upgraded to Postgraduate level (Certificate/Diploma or MSc).

    International students:

    Academic requirements
    We accept a range of qualifications

    English language requirements

    You can satisfy our English language requirements in two ways:

    by holding an English language qualification to the right level
    by taking and successfully completing one of our English courses for international students


    This forward-thinking programme is designed to help the leaders of such organisations navigate the complex political, strategic and operational terrain that their roles present. It is designed for managers and policy makers working in or with public commissioning organisations and others wishing to develop their understanding of the commissioning role.


    MSc participants study four core modules, plus any two specialist option modules and a dissertation. Diploma participants follow the same module/sector stream choices as their MSc colleagues but are exempt from the dissertation element.

    Salidas profesionales

    Typical paths include career progression within the public sector, with the participant’s aspirations being more saleable with a supporting qualification. Transferability of skills also supports participants to change organisations or pathways within public and related sectors.

    The qualifications will also support postgraduates seeking an entirely new career within the public sector, such as management.
