About our range of postgraduate courses A QMU postgraduate course can help you change direction, get into a new line of work, bring together various disciplines, or fulfil the requirements of your professional/statutory bodies by allowing you to gain recognised qualifications. Postgraduate key facts: QMU has around 5,000 students with more than 1,000 studying for a postgraduate qualification. Postgraduate diploma courses generally take between six and nine months full-time, or one to two years part-time. A wide range of professionally relevant postgraduate courses are available in the areas of management, business, health sciences, culture, education, global health and public relations. Many of our courses are approved or accredited by professional bodies. Postgraduate courses are available to students with a UK honours degree, a degree plus relevant experience, or an equivalent qualification. A variety of research programmes are available which can lead to Professional Doctorate, MRes and PhD qualifications. A part-time course can help you develop skills relevant to the work in which you are currently engaged. You can study for single modules as an associate student, as part of your continuing professional development, without committing to a full degree programme. A master’s degree course normally takes one year to complete full-time or up to seven years part-time. Many of our courses include a placement. Some of our courses are available online - see www.qmu.ac. uk/study-here/online-learning/ 8
