If you wish to furtheryour knowledge of a subject, to prepare for a research degree,to gain a vocational qualification or to make a fresh start in asubject that is new to you; then you may like to consider oneof our taught Masters courses.
We offer a wide range of taught Masters programmes, usually in the form of Master of Arts (MA) or Master of Science (MSc). However, there are a number of other programme types available, including the Master of Education (MEd), Master of Engineering (MEng), and Master of Business Administration (MBA). In addition, we offer Postgraduate Diplomas, Certificates and other qualifications that can be taken on a full-time, part-time or modular basis.
For most Masters programmes you need to have a good degree (usually at least a 2:1) or an equivalent qualification in a relevant subject. Some Masters degrees have additional requirements such as relevant work experience.
MA and MSc programmes are normally one year in duration, while Postgraduate Diploma and Certificate courses are usually nine months.
MEd Programmes - the MEd qualification is restricted to qualified and experienced teachers but otherwise it is similar in structure to MA programmes. Students first complete all modules for the PG Diploma and then transfer to an MEd. Therefore a part time MEd can last 3 years.
MBA Programmes - the Birmingham MBA is a suite of high quality programmes in a variety of flexible formats. It can be studied as a 12-month intensive full time programme; alternatively you can choose to study preliminary courses that can extend the programme to 21 or 24 months. It can also be studied part-time over to four years, delivered in intensive blocks.
