Postgraduate subjects

We offer almost 200 postgraduate taught courses and more than 100 research degrees, including a growing portfolio of online and distance learning courses, across over 30 subject areas.

Our vibrant community of creative and critical thinkers work within and between disciplines, delivering courses that draw on our departments' world-leading research.

Taught courses (typically Masters degrees) involve a series of modules delivered through a mix of lectures, seminars and independent study, and may include a dissertation.

Research degrees (typically PhDs) allow you to conduct a comprehensive study of a particular topic. You’ll produce a piece of independent and original research, which you’ll write up in the form of a thesis or a dissertation.
