Build on your experience

This course offers a convenient fast-track route to a masters degree for professionals who already hold the Institute of Acoustics (IOA) Diploma in Acoustics and Noise Control.

You will enter the MSc at the masters stage, so your studies will centre on a research-based investigation - either practical or desktop-based - culminating in a thesis on an acoustics topic of your choice.

Throughout this independent study, you'll be supervised and supported by an academic advisor.

Meaningful and relevant research

If - like most of our students - you are already employed in the acoustics field, the skills and knowledge you gain on the course will be directly relevant to your day-to-day work.

You can choose to undertake a work-based study which is of benefit to both you and your organisation. We will liaise with you and your employer to ensure that your study meets the right academic criteria for an MSc award.

If you are not currently employed in a Noise related field, we can provide support regarding the selection and development of a Project.

An expert team to support you

You'll benefit from the support of our friendly and approachable academic staff. Our teaching team is made up of experienced acousticians, all of whom are full and active members of the Institute of Acoustics. You'll also enjoy guest lectures by key practitioners.

We are regularly called upon to deliver bespoke acoustics courses and consultancy for industry, local authorities and government bodies. We have also conducted important research into subjects such as road traffic noise and noise associated with dog kennels.

Flexibility and convenience

With distance learning you can fit your MSc studies around your work and personal commitments. You can complete the course full-time over a year or part-time over two years.

We provide high-quality online learning materials, recorded presentations by academic staff, online tutorials and online classroom sessions where you can share your views and experiences.

What students think about University of Derby

    Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management

    Testimonial from Arun Sudhakar MSc International Spa Management, student at University of Derby

    “Any student who really wants to progress with their learning will not be disappointed when joining the University of Derby. I would recommend all ambitious students interested in the spa industry to come and join the MA International Spa Management course for a brighter future!

     I really enjoyed studying in Buxton. It is a very calm and beautiful place where I have been successful in building good relations with the local people. I will be so sad when I leave because of the memories of some great times I have had here. I feel blessed with the knowledge and experience I got from my tutors, and have enjoyed each and every moment.”

    Sumedha found that modules were covered in great detail; smaller classes are beneficial because they enable the students to have the lecturer’s personal attention. “Lecturers at Derby are extremely supportive and very friendly and my class mates are truly international. Being exposed to various cultures here in Derby while studying has already helped me and it will continue to help me when I start working in an international environment.”
