Postgraduate taught degrees
If you’re reading this, you’ll probably know what course you would like to study. However, there are several levels of study that you might want to consider when making your decision.
At Huddersfield, we offer the following postgraduate taught degrees:
- Continuing Professional Development (CPD) – studied as single postgraduate modules, a CPD qualification can provide you with provide specialist knowledge in specific subject areas. They can also be ‘cashed-in’ towards postgraduate certificates, postgraduate diplomas and Master’s degrees.
- Postgraduate certificates and diplomas – these qualifications are internationally recognised and can help you to develop specific skills. They are usually shorter in duration than Master’s courses and can be built on if you wish to gain higher level qualifications with the University in the future.
- Master’s degrees – studying at Master’s level will involve completing advanced specialist study in a particular subject or profession and usually contain a taught element and supervised dissertation or research project.
There are entry requirements for each of our courses, but we may also consider experience instead of, or alongside formal qualifications. You can search our course finder or contact the course admissions team for information about entry requirements for individual courses.
