You can access an indicative timetable for your chosen programme via the Taught Postgraduate Programme Catalogue. Please note that this will relate to the current academic year and may be subject to change when your programme commences. Final timetables are not confirmed until September. On average, a full-time taught MA programme will involve approximately 4-6 hours of compulsory activities per week, but this can vary depending on the programme and the modules you choose. In addition to teaching hours, you should take into account the amount of time expected for independent study, completion of assessed work and co-curricular activities such as attendance at research seminars, etc. (which is encouraged).
