Postgraduate courses A-Z

Our postgraduate courses combine advanced level tuition with, if you choose a full master’s course, the completion of a research project and dissertation under the guidance of your tutor. In most courses, you will take a mix of core and elective modules so that you can tailor your programme to your own interests. Also see our postgraduate courses starting in January 2021.
