Accredited University degrees offer exemption from the Education Requirements for Chartered Membership of the CILT. The accredited programmes should provide for the development in depth of knowledge and skills in specific areas of logistics and transport or related areas.
The CILT acknowledges that Bachelors and Masters Degrees serve different purposes. The programmes can also be delivered over different periods of time and via a range of mechanisms. This accreditation process recognises that:
- A Bachelors Level degree should deliver a systematic understanding of key aspects of the subject, including the acquisition of coherent and detailed knowledge, informed by current and relevant published academic research in the subject.
- Bachelors Graduates will demonstrate an ability to deploy accurately the established techniques of analysis and enquiry within the subject.
- A Masters Level degree should deliver in-depth knowledge and understanding of the discipline, informed by the highest standards of scholarship and academic research.
- Masters Graduates will demonstrate a high level of understanding of current issues in the subject and be able to critically evaluate their impact.
- Masters Graduates will be expected to demonstrate a range of techniques and research methods.
The CILT supports the development of degree programmes with an element of work placement/experience. As applications for Chartered Membership are assessed on a combination of knowledge and relevant experience, a graduate from these degrees will be eligible to use this work experience as part of their application process.
The Institute would also like to encourage the development of forward-looking and innovative courses, particularly at the Masters level. To this end courses that expand and enrich the study of Logistics and Transport at Higher degree level may be considered on their own merits at the discretion of the Accreditation Committee.
It is normally expected that an undergraduate degree course gaining full accreditation for Chartered Membership will achieve at least 75% coverage of the Institute’s Key Knowledge Areas (KKA) of Core Generic Content plus 75% of one or more of the Specialist Areas listed below. Postgraduate courses are usually narrower and more specific in scope, so the coverage of the KKA is likely to be more focused on a particular area.
