Postgraduate taught

Gear up for postgraduate study and quickly identify what will help you develop the skills you need.

For many, stepping up to postgraduate study can be challenging, not least because you need to get up and running a lot quicker than at undergraduate level. For your Master's degree, you will need to immerse yourself in your studies to a greater depth than your undergraduate degree and be able to apply your learning more widely.

These resources will help you locate the support you need to make a success of your postgraduate degree, building on your previous skills and experiences and helping you make the most of the numerous opportunities UCL has on offer to help you develop your interests and prepare for your next steps.
