Master of Commerce MCom
The MCom degree consists of two parts: a first year of coursework (between six and nine courses), and a thesis which is completed full-time in 1–2 subsequent years.
Students who have qualified for a BCom(Hons) or equivalent may be admitted to the MCom by thesis only in that subject.
Candidates must have completed a Bachelor’s degree with good grades and satisfied the prerequisites for the subject concerned.
Prerequisites vary between departments, but normally good grades in 300-level courses in the subject concerned are required.
For information on the prerequisites for each subject see the Regulations website (below).

Part 1: one year full-time; 18–48 months part-time.
Part 2 (thesis only): 7–24 months full-time; 14–48 months part-time.
Enrolment is normally full-time unless the Dean of Commerce approves part-time study.
