Postgraduate Courses 2016-17

The following course options are for all Masters students. Please note the content of the course may vary each year. Masters students must obtain permission from their individual Masters tutors to attend a particular optional course.

Optional courses for Masters students are run through 11/2 hour/2 hour specialist seminars but students are advised to attend the lectures associated with the options they choose, which are open to both postgraduate and undergraduate students.

Masters seminars will normally assume knowledge of the material presented in these open lectures, and deal with the issues raised at a more advanced level.
One extended essay is normally required for each option you take. Please check with your tutor for the requirements of your specific Masters programme.

Times of seminars can be by arrangement and as such will be confirmed at the first lecture for the course. Always check the online timetable for the time and place of the lectures.
