Masters degrees

Our Masters degrees allow you to explore your interests in more depth and enhance your employability. Each course blends innovative teaching with an independent research project on a topic of your choice.

Our research masters courses are ideal if you_amp_rsquo;d like to undertake more extensive research at Masters level. You_amp_rsquo;ll receive training in research skills and methodologies, but study less taught content overall.

We offer a range of study options, including part time and distance learning. This allows you to fit your learning around other commitments, and study at a time and place that suits you.

Postgraduate diplomas

Our postgraduate diplomas are a great way to expand your knowledge and gain a recognised qualification, but are shorter in length than a Masters degree.

You_amp_rsquo;ll study the same taught content as on the associated Masters course, but won_amp_rsquo;t submit a dissertation. We also offer distance learning study options.

Enhance your studies

Whether you study on campus or through distance learning, you’ll have access to careers guidance, funding opportunities, and specialist support to help you make the most of your time at Leeds.
