Postgraduate qualifications explained
Postgraduate qualifications are ideal if you want to continue developing specialist expertise in your subject area on successful completion of your bachelor’s degree. Your goal may be to further progress your industry career or you may want to move into the field of academia.
Qualifications are split into two categories - taught master’s and research degrees. You can choose to study full-time, or part-time around other commitments. You can also progress directly from your undergraduate degree or at a later date.
A taught master’s degree involves lectures and practical sessions, alongside the completion of a dissertation or project. At Hartpury, our taught master’s qualifications include:
Our research degrees are Doctorate’s of Philosophy (PhDs). They can be taken on successful completion of a master’s degree or directly from your undergraduate degree.
The main component is the doctoral thesis - a significant research project on a specialist topic that adds new knowledge or understanding to your field of study, and is worthy of publication.
Doctorates are generally completed over three to five years and on successful completion, you’ll be able to put Dr. in front of your name.
