Postgraduate taught routes include PgC, PgD, MSc, MEng, MProf and MRes qualifications. A full-time student can achieve their Masters degree in one year, a part-time student can expect this to take a little longer, dependent on how many modules are completed each year.
The part-time option is popular with students wishing to fit study around work and personal commitments. But full-time works for those with commitments too. Postgraduate degrees at Harper Adams are delivered through ‘block-based study’, with each module being delivered in blocks of on-campus, face-to-face teaching that last one or two weeks. In addition to this, students will be required to conduct further self-study away from campus. They will be fully supported via ‘The Learning Hub’, the university’s interactive virtual learning environment which has a range of learning aids.
There is an MRes option on most subjects, combining taught modules with an in-depth research project, for students who wish to enter research-based careers. The university also offers a number of MPhil and PhD opportunities across all departments.
All courses are underpinned by Harper Adams University’s extensive research and long-standing collaborations with other research institutes in the UK and abroad. Many are also accredited by relevant professional associations.
