Project Professionals Programme

Become a recognised project professional with our part-time P3M programme at the University of Warwick.

What will you gain?

We're offering a unique opportunity to undertake a blended programme of business relevant, applied learning in Project, Programme and Portfolio Management (P3M) that provides successful delegates with both professional and academic qualifications.

After successfully completing the programme you have two further options to continue your development:

  • To carry forward those postgraduate credits from the PgA towards a full Master’s degree with us
  • To step forward for recognition as an APM Registered Project Professional (RPP)

Course structure

Taught modules

Two* 5-day modules delivered at the University of Warwick.

  1. P3M Environment: Professionalism and managing others; Planning and control; Governance
  2. P3M Delivery: Project management; Programme management; Portfolio management

We firmly believe in practical learning and not lectures alone. You should expect to participate in group work, exercises and simulations as well as learning from the experiences of visiting speakers from a range of industries.

Modules are assessed through work-based post-module assignments. This enables you to apply what you've learned to your role and your organisation, and helps to embed everything that you've learned.

Independent study

You will be expected to plan your time to allow for sufficient revision for the APM exams.

APM exams

There will be four* 3-hour APM exams, to be held on four separate half-days during the programme.
