Postgraduate Taught Courses

study imageThere is a huge choice of taught Master’s courses at Warwick, leading to the degrees of MA, MSc, MBA or LLM. Many are interdisciplinary, involving several different departments or faculties; some are directly related to professional requirements. All are carefully structured, developed and delivered by experts in their fields, often drawing on individual research experience.

Specific data relating to individual courses can be found via the public version of the Graduate Employment Market Statistics (GEMS) database.

What is a Taught Course?

Taught courses offer students advanced and detailed study in the subject of their first degree or a route to develop specific skills within a chosen career. Teaching is through seminars and lectures and all taught Master’s include a dissertation.

Applying for a Taught Course

You will normally need at least a lower second class degree (2:2) or equivalent qualification in an appropriate subject. Some departments may also ask for relevant work experience. If you do not have a degree of the required grade you may be considered on the merits of previous experience. You should contact your preferred department at an early stage to discuss eligibility.

Application deadlines

Places on taught postgraduate taught courses are limited, so you should submit your application as early as possible.

If you are an international applicant and need to obtain a student visa, you will need to leave plenty of time for this process.

For this reason, international applicants must submit their application by 31 July for courses that begin in September. If you are a UK or EU applicant, there are no deadlines for applications to postgraduate taught places.

Please note that some departments will have earlier deadlines; you should check the information in the Essential Information on each individual postgraduate taught course webpage (you can find a list of taught courses on the A-Z webpage).
