The Master of Public Administration programme provides professional development for those already working in the broad field of public services management, or those wishing to develop a career in that area. The MPA programme is particularly relevant for those individuals involved in the delivery and management of services, both within central government and on the ground.
The programme focuses on the organisational and governmental context within which public services are delivered, and the skills required for successful administration of public service programmes. The programme will promote shared learning across sectors (public, private, non-profit), within an international context.
In the summer term, all course participants are required to complete a policy report supported through personal supervision and a support workshop.

During the Summer Term students start work on a Policy Report on a topic of their choice. The report is due for submission at the end of the summer vacation.
The Master of Public Administration may also be taken on a part-time basis over two years (24 months).
If you've not already done so, please read the application guidance.
