Postgraduate Degrees

Postgraduate taught study will extend your knowledge and skills and allow you to specialise in a subject beyond undergraduate level

A postgraduate qualification can also enhance your career prospects or help you to take your career in a different direction. A taught route is ideal if you want a structured framework for your studies, with courses delivered through a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials. With many courses available on full or part-time basis, you’re sure to find something to fit around your life and preferred style of study.
