Masters degrees in Study Skills offer advanced training in the techniques for developing efficient individual ability and learning efficacy.
Taught MA courses are typical for this field, though shorter Postgraduate Certificates and Diplomas are also available. Entry requirements include an undergraduate degree in any subject. Work experience may be accepted in some cases.
These courses are an ideal way for you to gain experience of studying to Masters level, before taking on a large proportion of independent study or research. They are particularly helpful if you come from a background without prior study experience at degree level.
You will be trained in techniques and methodologies for research, introduced to the skills needed to write academic assignments, and explore different concepts for learning. Approaches on these courses are often interdisciplinary, with management theory, psychology and more being drawn upon.
As well as providing you with techniques for Masters level study, these courses are an ideal foundation for further study and research at PhD level.
You may also apply these skills to a range of working roles, such as marketing, teaching and counselling.
