Edge Hill University offers a range of taught Masters degrees, as well as Postgraduate Certificates and Postgraduate Diplomas, across a wide variety of subject areas.

Our postgraduate taught courses are designed to develop a deeper knowledge and comprehensive understanding of topics you may have previously studied at undergraduate level or you are looking to newly explore.

Whether you’re interested in postgraduate study with a particular subject or career in mind, want to learn new skills or gain fresh insights, or take the next step towards a doctorate award, we can offer you a highly engaging learning experience.

Postgraduate students thrive on the stimulation and challenges that study at Masters level provides. You will have the opportunity to work with new concepts, share ideas with like-minded individuals, and shape your own contribution to knowledge as part of our research-active community.

Is a postgraduate taught course right for you?

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.
