Throughout the modules, you are encouraged to apply the theoretical material to real world issues within the aviation industry, as human factors practitioners would.
The course consists of eight core modules covering the main areas of human factors in aviation and a module involving a critical review of contemporary literature on a relevant topic, followed by an applied human factors research thesis within the field (divided across two modules). All modules are mandatory.

However, applications from candidates with relevant experience and professional qualifications, or those with an undergraduate degree in another discipline will also be considered on an individual basis.
Each application will be considered on its merits and the final decision will be made by the course director.
