Postgraduate Taught

Our postgraduate students come from a variety of countries and backgrounds, either to enhance their professional qualifications, continue their studies or pursue personal interests.

Our extensive range of taught MA programmes reflects staff research interests and expertise. Our dedicated and passionate team of academics deliver the programmes through a mixture of core and optional modules, seminars, small classes and one-to-one supervision.

The programmes include:

 

Students work with tutors to enhance their academic writing and research skills, leading up to a final dissertation on a topic of their choice.

The Sydney Jones Library provides a superb suite of electronic materials, journals, books, special collections and archives, with support from a knowledgeable, helpful team.

Students are encouraged to take part in the seminar series, social events and staff-student meetings that regularly take place at the University.
