Take a taught course, and update your knowledge in rapidly changing technical or social science fields, or learn advanced techniques in subjects you studied at undergraduate level.
A masters degree can provide you with a platform for further research or can help you change career focus. It also shows you have high-level generic skills and advanced specialist knowledge to give you a boost in a competitive job market.
As a taught postgraduate student, you will combine traditional seminars, lectures, and tutorials with independent project-based investigation. Full-time programmes normally last for nine or twelve months.
If you're not sure whether you want to take a taught course or a research degree, look at what's available in your subject area and contact the admissions tutors for more information.
Applicants must meet the University's minimum requirements for entry to a masters course. This is usually a good honours degree as well as specific requirements set by the department. In some cases, relevant work experience may be taken in lieu of academic qualifications.
