University Of Edinburgh Masters

Our taught masters programmes comprise specialised training, followed by an independent dissertation. They are all recognised across Europe and beyond (Bologna compatible).

Programme structure


Most programmes involve 12 months of full time study. If you study part-time – either on-campus on online – it will take you longer to complete the programme.

Studying online

Choosing between full-time and part-time study

Some programmes take 24 months; these are often offered in collaboration with EU universities.

Our taught masters include coursework with assessment chosen to suit the circumstances and practice of the discipline concerned.

You will also undertake independent work, which is normally submitted as a dissertation.
