MSc Professional Development

The MSc Professional Development (Loss Adjusting) provides an opportunity for Associate and Fellow members of the CILA to ‘top-up’ their existing professional CILA qualifications in order to obtain a Master's qualification.

The course has been developed in conjunction with Bournemouth University and you can choose to either complete an Extended Project or a selection of units from Bournemouth University Business School.

The Extended Project is an opportunity to complete a significant piece of self-managed research in an area that interests you. Your assessment will be a 30,000 word project, and this will be structured as a single extended project or two smaller independent projects.

Alternatively, you can pick a number of units which together make up 120 credits. Units are typically 20 or 40 credits, so you’ll need to complete between three and six units to top-up to the MSc.

Further information can be found on the Bournemouth University website at

What our Members say

Becoming a Fellow of the CILA reflects the additional technical knowledge I gained in a practical way whilst investigating property claims including major losses. I am also able to mentor colleagues and assist instructing principals on technical issues and problem solving.
