The whole process takes around three months. Other postgraduate offerings may have different enrolment processes and will be available as and when these programmes or positions are announced.

What is the difference between taught courses and research courses?

Quite simply, the amount of independent research increases with the level of the degree. Whereas in some undergraduate programmes you may be required to undertake a small research project and write a short dissertation, for a Masters course you will be required to carry out and successfully present a larger, more structured and developed research topic. For a PhD it is likely that aside from some short courses to help develop your skills, practically all of your programme will be based upon your particular research project and finally assessed by a viva panel, following submission of your dissertation.

Do you have courses that start in January?

Some courses, particularly those offered by our Institute for Professional Development and Continuing Education, may start in January. Please contact the Student Office for more details.
