The MSP Practitioner, 5th Edition course from University of Westminster designed for professionals who lead, manage or support transformational change. MSP® was created as industry best practice with a principle-based approach to deliver outcomes and benefits in any sector. 


The MSP Practitioner, 5th Edition course from University of Westminster focuses on the common challenges involved to ensure project outputs translate into business outcomes and benefits, and deliver increased value to an organisation. The updated MSP® 5th edition adopts an incremental approach to the programme lifecycle that emphasizes more flexibility, adaptability, and responsiveness and the enabling of organisational agility.The MSP® Practitioner course provides further guidance on the application of principles, processes and tools used to manage programmes in any environment. It confirms you have sufficient knowledge and understanding of the MSP® guidance to act as an informed member of a programme management team.

This course is ideal for existing or aspiring project, operational or programme managers, those working in the area of quality assurance and any professional looking to learn about project management to gain the certifications needed for a career or just to improve their understanding.


Programme management takes project management to the next level and is often a natural progression for experienced project managers. Whereas projects deliver outputs and discrete parcels of change, programmes focus on the coordination of multiple related projects. They are more strategic, more focused on managing organisational growth and change and have a defined value proposition.

If you are looking to accelerate your career, possessing the industry-recognised MSP® Practitioner certification will demonstrate your proficiency to successfully deliver transformation change. MSP® certification helps you stand out to prospective employers, giving them confidence you can carry out the coordinated organisation, direct and implement a dossier of projects while maintaining performance and effectiveness. MSP® is applicable across numerous industries and can be tailored to local situations.

Programme Structure

Course structure:

The MSP® Practitioner course follows on from the Foundation course, where we introduced the method, its philosophy and its terminology. It focuses on the more intricate aspects of the method. Based on a case study, the method is put into practice through a series of challenging questions that mirror the questions of the exam.

The course consists of a series of classroom (or online) lectures and group exercises. The lectures introduce the method’s terminology, then we will discuss case studies to explain how to use the method in practice. We will provide supplementary learning material via the University’s online learning platform.

The exam has the following format:

  • Multiple-choice questions
  • 58 questions per paper (including 6 matching questions worth 3 marks each), 70 marks available in total
  • 42 marks required to pass (out of 70) - 60%
  • Two-and-a-half hours’ duration
  • Open book exam.
