In the UK, Postgraduate courses tend to be split into those that are largely taught and those that are largely research based. Postgraduate Archaeology master's generally take one or two years to complete whereas Archaeology PhD's will take at least three years.
Postgraduate Subject Intro: Archaeology
Thanks to a rapidly-developing UK heritage industry, it's a great time to be digging archaeology. From the Bronze Age to the Tudors, over 50 academic institutions run archaeology courses, with some offering more exotic discoveries in areas like classical archaeology and egyptology.
Most teach skills like excavation and surveying, but many specialise in practical aspects, preparing students for work outside museums and universities in the growing field of contract archaeology, conducting investigations before construction sites are developed.
