There are more than 300 different taught courses to choose from. Taught Masters courses usually run for one year (full-time) or two years (part-time). Alternatively, postgraduate diplomas usually last for nine months (full-time). Postgraduate certificates take 4-5 months.
Certain courses can commence in January, rather than September. More information about each individual course start date can be found on the University of Glasgow website, or in the prospectus.
There are also research degrees available, generally split into research masters and PhDs.
The university offers a vast range of courses for postgraduate students, taught by leading experts. Students benefit from an extensive range of learning resources, including one of the largest university libraries in the UK – with over 800 PCs. There is the opportunity to study full or part time on a number of the taught degrees, while research degrees and distance courses are also available.
Student reviewers praised both the course content and the lecturers teaching them, often describing them as “friendly” and “helpful”. They also applauded the small class sizes as it meant more interaction with their lecturers.
