Our postgraduate courses are as flexible as possible and, where appropriate, are timetabled on a particular day or days so you can plan attendance to fit in with other commitments.
Most of our taught courses start in late September with the remainder in January. It is possible to start a PhD at different points throughout the year although most students start in the autumn.
Taught courses are normally 12 months in length although a small number are longer than this. Full-time PhD degrees generally extend for three years, with some disciplines offering four-year courses.
Part-time courses generally last twice as long as the full-time equivalent. Some postgraduate courses run in the early evening. Please browse our postgraduate courses to find out if a course is available part-time, and/or by distance learning.
