    Abstract

    Being a postgraduate programme, the MSc is highly academic in order to develop critical thinking and complex problem solving. Students also gain practical skills through short placements and gain research skills through a dissertation project. Students value the course being run in a traditional format, rather than by distance learning. The number of students has been small, which has allowed strong integration among the students. However, supplementary income to keep the course going has been necessary from the beginning, especially in the form of studentships. Fifty five percent of the graduates have gone on to jobs in the AT field with higher levels of responsibility, following completion of the MSc.
