Why study a taught Masters degree?

Two students sit by a computer in the Hub.Studying a taught Masters award is an opportunity to make a substantial difference to your future career prospects and develop specialist expertise.

Covering broad subject areas, taught postgraduate programmes are designed to develop deeper knowledge and comprehensive techniques in dedicated topics previously studied more generally at undergraduate level.

Supported by a personal tutor, students can expect to attend a combination of seminars and lectures, along with preparing supervised coursework and completing an assessed dissertation and examination.

You will acquire a range of transferable skills that are highly sought after by employers, including the capacity for critical thought, project management, time management, presentation skills, and the ability to work both independently and as part of a team.

Postgraduate students thrive on the stimulation and challenges that study at Masters level provides. Working with new concepts, sharing ideas with like-minded individuals, and shaping your own contribution to knowledge makes for a highly rewarding and fulfilling experience.
