How long does it take to complete the online course? Is it possible to graduate quicker?



An online masters programme will take most students 2.5 to 3 years to complete. An online doctoral programme will take 4 to 5 years to complete. An online masters student may complete their programme in two years if they take no breaks between modules – if the module schedule of their programme allows this. An online doctoral programme, likewise, can be completed in four years with no breaks between modules (if the module schedule of the programme allows this).
