At Edge Hill University, we offer a range of taught Masters degrees, as well as Postgraduate Certificates and Postgraduate Diplomas, across a wide range of subject areas. All our courses are designed with our students in mind, allowing you to enhance your knowledge and skillset, boosting your employability.

Is a postgraduate taught course right for you?

Postgraduate study gives you the opportunity to work with new concepts on a deeper level, sharing your ideas with like-minded individuals, and shaping your contribution as part of our research-active community.

A postgraduate taught course is ideal if you are looking to:

  • progress from undergraduate study
  • explore a new subject of interest
  • prepare for a research degree
  • acquire new and specialised skills
  • enhance your career opportunities.

During your studies you will be supported by a Personal Tutor and can expect to attend a combination of seminars and tutorials along with preparing supervised coursework. Some programmes also require the completion of an assessed dissertation and/or an examination.
