Postgraduate taught courses

Our taught postgraduate courses are designed to be as flexible as possible, knowing the commitments that some of you will have whilst working towards your qualification. You can study for either a Master’s degree or Postgraduate diploma on a full or part-time basis. Several subjects offer distance/distributed learning opportunities.

General intake requirements are listed for each course in our course finder, but it is important to remember that we will also consider your application if you have appropriate experience instead of formal qualifications.

We offer some progression bursaries and scholarships for postgraduates. Please see our loans and bursaries page for more detailed information.

Study part-time

If you wish to study part-time and a Master's degree seems too large a commitment at this stage, or you want to use postgraduate study to pick up some very specific skills, you might want to consider a Postgraduate Certificate or a Postgraduate Diploma. These qualifications are steps along the route to a Master's degree, but they are internationally recognised in their own right and they can be built on for higher qualifications within the University in the future.

All of our postgraduate modules can be studied on an individual basis, making them an ideal source of specialist knowledge in specific subject areas. If you attend a single module and elect to be assessed, you can receive a Certificate in Continuing Professional Development and you can in the future "cash-in" this achievement as part of a Postgraduate Certificate, Postgraduate Diploma or Master's degree.

For more information about Continuing Professional Development (CPD) courses contact the CPD specialists in the Business Support Office by e-mail: cpd@hud.ac.uk
