About the course
The MSc Intelligence Systems is a work-based programme that has been developed to specifically provide the opportunity for Armed Forces personnel (both serving and retired) to validate aspects of their service history through a recognised higher education route.
Teaching on this programme is a combination of different techniques including a “hands on” practical approach to scenarios and workshops, debates, lectures and independent research. Example modules for study include advanced intelligence systems management; complex signals analysis; electronic warfare and information operations; and managed intelligence databases.
The programme is only available to those applicants who are currently serving military officers or those who have recently left the armed forces but are employed in an associated relevant profession. In some circumstances, it can be offered to civilians who have worked closely with the armed forces for a significant length of time.
Good relevant honours degree.

How You Are Assessed
The course is primarily assessed through coursework, projects and portfolios of work.
The University of Lincoln's policy on assessment feedback aims to ensure that academics will return in-course assessments to you promptly – usually within 15 working days after the submission date.
As a postgraduate student you may be eligible for scholarships in addition to those shown above.
Guidance for Part-time Postgraduate Fees
To complete a standard Master's Taught programme, you must complete 180 credit points.
Full time students will be invoiced for the programme in full upon initial enrolment.
For part-time students, tuition fees are payable each credit point enrolled. To calculate your part-time fees, multiply the part-time fee per credit point by the number of credits you intend to complete within that academic year. This is usually between 60 and 90 credit points per year.
For example, if the fee per credit point for your programme is £38, and you enrol on 60 credits, the tuition fee payable for that academic year will be £2280.
Fees for enrolment on additional modules
Tuition fees for additional activity are payable by the student/sponsor and charged at the equivalent £ per credit point rate for each module. Additional activity includes:
- Enrolment on modules that are in addition to the validated programme curriculum
- Enrolment on modules that are over and above the full credit diet for the relevant academic year
- Retakes of modules as permitted by the Board of Examiners
Exceptionally tuition fees may not be payable where a student has been granted a retake with approved extenuating circumstances.
