Postgraduate students are a vital part of Durham’s academic community, and we pay particular attention to the distinctive contribution that taught and research students bring. We also appreciate the specific education and development needs of postgraduates, and provide tailored support through our Graduate School, our faculties and our departments. There are many different ways you can study at Durham. You can apply for a taught degree offering lecture or seminar courses in a specific area, undertake your own studies under expert academic supervision as part of a research degree, or register for a professional doctorate combining taught modules with an extended research thesis. Each route has its own unique features and benefits. Postgraduate taught degrees can enhance employability, or act as a foundation for further study at research degree level. The postgraduate taught route is ideal for students who want a structured framework for their studies. Most taught degrees are one year Masters courses delivered via a combination of lectures, seminars and tutorials. Taught degrees blend core and optional modules in specialist subject areas, with a substantial dissertation or research project.
