Hello,

I am a French student in Top School Centrale Lyon and I want to study supply chain management.
My school only allow me to apply to one university and I have a dilemna between WMG and Cranfield.
They both have a good reputation on this MSc.

2 things are bothering me : quality of courses, student life.
I also know that the number of courses hours in Warwick is low: only 10 weeks and I am quite worried about that.

Can you please give me your advice and if anyone attend theses MSc tell me about your experience.

Thanks.

I also have to decide between Cranfield and Warwick for MSc in Supply Chain Management and Logistics and don't really know where to go.

If anyone is studying this Master at one of these universities or had to make the same decision - please help!

Among most recruiters, Cranfield is considered the better SCM programme in terms of academics, balance of practice/analysis and student satisfaction. For EU students, Cranfield's tuition works out cheaper. The only reason it is less well known is Cranfield's focus on master's and lack of undergrad programme.

Student life is similar as both locations are remote campuses, but shopping in Milton Keynes is good.

Hey Prakash !

I am choosing between Manchester , WMG and Cranfield.

Warwick has a great overal reputation. But 2.2 requirement seems odd Why it can be that low, considering its reputation. or WMG is not as good as Warwick itself?
Thanks

Actually I have the same question as studentR. Is WMG as reputable and efficient in terms of academic practice as Warwick itself? Thank you

At masters level you apply direct to the university. I don't know if things are any different in France but I can't see why you can't apply to as many universities as you want?

I did my MSc at Cranfield in 2009-10, but not in SCM. I'm happy to answer any general questions you (or anyone else) has about the place. Good luck!

Oops, just seen OP is from 2012. Still happy to answer any questions though :-)

Hi Tunaski,

Firstly, congratulations on coming to Cranfield!

We have a very diverse population of students, many students here have children and other family commitments, and we try hard to enable people to have an enjoyable and constructive time during their studies here. For example we offer family accommodation, we have an on-site nursery and pre-school and our admissions service can help with enrolling children in other local childcare.
You can find out more information on our website:
https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/study/li...nging-a-family
https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/study/li...-and-education


With regards to this fitting in with your studies, the Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc consists of two parts - taught modules and a research project. For the taught modules you will need to be in attendance at set times. Modules last for a week and are usually a traditional 9am - 5pm day. The individual research project is usually a lot more relaxed, and you can generally work around your own schedule. Many students here work evenings and weekends, most facilities are open 24/7 (with card access) and so you can do your work whenever is easiest for you (including working from home).

If you would like more details, please contact the SoM admissions team [email protected].
You can also ask them to put you in touch with the course leader who will be able to offer more personalised advice and assistance.

Kind regards,

Katherine
Student Ambassador

Hi Katherine

Thanks for the information.
It would really be helpful if you could send me a timetable or a schedule showing the activities per week for at least semester 1 and 2. I couldn't get this information anywhere on cranfield website.
My intent is not so much of work, it's taking care of my 3 kids (5, 7 and 9) and getting them off to school and back without a help or Nanny. Pls, do understand I am not from the UK and I am yet to fully understand how it works in the UK.
Also, if I am able to secure school accomodation, are there buses that drop children in their school (say Cranfield Church of England Academy for example) without me having to take them to school myself considering that my classes start by 9am and children school also starts same time.

Hello,

There are public busses that run between the campus and the village that your children can take, there may also be school specific buses, however you will have to check eligibility of this with the school / council. Schools usually open early to allow parents to drop their children off before work, so you do not need to drop them off at 9am exactly.
There are many families on campus, so perhaps when you are settled you can arrange with other parents to share lifts to school. Cranfield has an official scheme for this, although it may be easier to just chat with other parents and see how they go about it
https://liftshare.com/uk/community/cranfield

You can speak with other students on the Cranfield students Facebook pages, perhaps you can make contact with other parents and share information.
https://www.facebook.com/groups/cranfieldstudents2020/

We also have student support services on site who are available to help you with any issues you may have not just academic but also with your life here in Cranfield, we want you and your family to be happy here so they will be able to put you in touch with relevant people to help with your childrens' schooling arrangements if you would like to get in touch with them: [email protected]

We also have a blog post about relocating to Cranfield with a young family if you would like a quick read:
https://blogs.cranfield.ac.uk/leader...te-study-worth

I have asked for information on timetables however it is likely they will not be finalised until nearer the time. I will let you know when I get a response.

Hope this all helps, if you need any more advice please ask

Hi Tunaski,

Sorry for such a late response, the SoM team is very busy at the moment with applications so it's taken me a while to find somebody to answer your questions.
I received the following response from a colleague about your query:


  • "I have managed to speak to the SAS Lead of this course. They have advised that it is best not to send a timetable through as it can change between now and then. However generally the students have lectures everyday between 8.30am-5.45pm with a two hour break in the afternoon. Term 1 is full then I believe that they have days off in the other terms. It is a full-time course so they will generally have lectures every day. We do have a part-time Executive Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc course that they may want to consider: https://www.cranfield.ac.uk/som/masters-courses/logistics-and-supply-chain-management-executive"


Apologies I couldn't get an actual timetable for you, but I hope this information is still useful.

Let me know if there's anything else I can help you with.

Katherine
