Here at Teesside, we offer two main types of postgraduate courses - taught courses and research degrees.
Our taught postgraduate courses normally involve a formal structure of lectures, seminars, lab work (if relevant), projects and a dissertation. You cover more advanced aspects of subjects studied at undergraduate level. You receive credits for each module you pass.
Master's degrees often include intermediate awards such as a postgraduate certificate (60 credits) and a postgraduate diploma (120 credits). For a full master's degree award, you need to successfully complete 180 credits - this includes the core element of advanced independent work, such as a research project or dissertation.
Research degrees involve supervised individual investigation of a subject area culminating in a thesis. Full-time study is about 35 hours a week on research, part-time around 12.

The challenge will stimulate you - and your sense of achievement when you realise your goal will make it worthwhile.
