January start

Join our world in January

You can start some of our taught postgraduate degrees in January. If you’re taking a career break to study this could be the best option for you. A January start also works well for overseas students as it allows more time to meet visa requirements.

If you are interested in postgraduate research, the majority of our research programmes are also available with a January start.

We offer a range of January start courses in law, politics, business, architecture, child protection and professional practice. Our current subject areas include:
