Studying a Masters

What's postgraduate study actually like? How do you you know what to expect from your course? And will it be that much harder than undergraduate study? The articles here will provide some answers and insight.

Postgraduate programmes are highly specialised, with a greater focus on independent study and self-directed learning. Courses are also more likely to include external placements or internships as well as substantial research projects or practical excercises. Our advice will help you manage the transition into more advanced work.

We've explained key features of postgraduate-level programmes, such as the Masters dissertation, and put together some tips for getting as much as possible out of further study.

We've also looked at specific topics such as managing a disability or illness during your degree.
