For a more structured, teaching-led approach to postgraduate study.
A taught postgraduate programme is a natural step for graduates, who would like to pursue further study.
In a similar approach as that used at undergraduate level, these programmes consist of course modules taught by senior academic staff through lectures, seminars, lab work and more.
- It should take one year (full-time) or two years (part-time) to complete a taught postgraduate programme;
- Taught programmes include Masters of Arts (MA), Masters of Sciences (MSc), Masters of Business Administration (MBA), Masters of Law (LLM) and more;
- You will be required to attend teaching-led modules that may include a mixture of lectures, seminars and workshops;
- Assessments will vary from discipline to discipline, and may include some independent research, group work, individual presentations, examinations and a final dissertation project;
- If you have a specialist area of further study in mind you may be able to avoid a final dissertation by completing a Postgraduate Diploma or Professional Doctorate instead;
- Consider further study opportunities and entry requirements in your final year of undergraduate study. Also, look at potential funding sources and scholarships that may be available. See our Fees and Finance section.
