You will be allocated a supervisor for your dissertation which must be submitted towards the end of your final year.

Gilly, a part-time MA (Humanities) student writes:
'One of the most valuable aspects of being an MA student is having the opportunity to develop your own particular areas of interest in a creative and empowering environment. I felt like part of a wonderful international family where my ideas were always encouraged and supported.'
