Our graduate taught degree programmes are designed to meet a range of needs – they may provide a foundation for research, or a route to career advancement, for example – and many of them offer flexible learning options to allow you to combine your study with professional or personal commitments.
Taught programmes normally begin at the start of the academic year in September.
These include: Master of Arts (MA), Master of Sciences (MSc), Master of Architecture (MArch), Master of Clinical Dentistry (MClinDent), Master of Fine Art (MFA), Master of Laws (LLM), Master of Public Administration (MPA), Executive Master of Public Administration (EMPA), Master of Teaching (MTeach) and Master of Business Administration (MBA).
Master’s programmes usually extend over 12 months full-time or two years part-time; an increasing number are offered on a flexible learning basis over three to five years (please see individual programmes for information).
The MRes programme normally extends over 12 months full-time, though some may be offered part-time (please see individual programmes for information). The degree includes taught elements, a significant research component, and training in research techniques to form the basis for doctoral study or a research career.
These programmes usually share an identical syllabus with the taught component of a corresponding Master’s programme, and extend over nine months full-time or two years part-time, or longer if flexible study is offered.
These programmes offer a certificated qualification attained over a shorter period of study – usually 15 weeks full-time or over one to two years if taken flexibly. They usually consist of selected components of a corresponding Master’s or Postgraduate Diploma programme.
These programmes offer a Master's level degree. Candidates usually spend three months studying at the UCL Institute of Education, before doing two placements at partner schools. Students graduate with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS), enabling them to teach in maintained schools in England and Wales.
For details (including entry requirements) of free-standing Graduate Diplomas in Archaeology or Civil Engineering please contact the relevant department.
An increasing number of UCL graduate programmes can be taken on a distance learning basis, whereby all teaching is delivered online. Please see individual programmes for information.
Academic units may offer courses from taught programmes and/or short courses, seminars and summer schools to support continuing professional development or for general interest. See Life Learning website for more information.
