Excellent Employment Opportunities
Our wide range of taught Masters and Diploma courses offer the opportunity to impart advanced knowledge or techniques in specialised aspects of subjects studied at undergraduate level, developing your skills further whilst enhancing your career opportunities and earning potential. Some can also serve as conversion courses, helping you to change your area of specialisation or take a change in career path.
The entrance requirement for most taught Masters courses is a second-class Honours degree in an appropriate discipline from an approved university; for certain Postgraduate Diplomas a third-class Honours degree or a non-Honours degree is sufficient. A range of other equivalent qualifications may also be considered.
The structure and assessment of taught courses normally involve formal lecture and seminar programmes over two semesters (September to May), which are assessed by written examination and the assessment of course work. Masters degrees and some Diplomas usually conclude with a project or dissertation over the summer period; assessment of the dissertation can include an oral examination.
