Postgraduate courses

Our postgraduate programmes cover a broad range of topics focused on our research specialisms.

You can choose to study on either a taught Master's or a research programme. A research Master's degree is studied over one year full-time while a PhD involves extended study over three or four years. We also offer a PhD by published works.

All our postgraduate programmes can also be studied part-time.
