A Master’s degree is a postgraduate degree that equips you with advanced professional qualifications

A Master’s degree is designed for graduates or professionals who wish to extend their skills and knowledge and obtain an advanced postgraduate degree. It is also suited for scientists wishing to become business/research managers and entrepreneurs. A Master’s degree usually takes between 1-3 years full-time equivalent, depending on the degree.


A research intensive Master’s includes a significant research component, where you will have the opportunity to conduct original research in your chosen field under supervision from one of our world-leading researchers. Some will also include a few courses to provide you with additional expert knowledge necessary to conduct your specialised research project.


A coursework Master’s, on the other hand, primarily involved taking advanced level courses specific to your chosen field of study. In many cases, you may also choose to include a small research component, and produce a final dissertation.
