PGT Entry Requirements

Why not pursue a Masters degree this September?

Choosing your degree

You will often study with leading experts, with those who create the knowledge, and write the books and the journal articles that you read for your first degree.  Many courses/programmes will have links with industry, whilst others will be purely academic.

Many taught postgraduate programmes (at Exeter and other universities) are Masters degrees. These normally combine advanced level tuition with the completion of a dissertation under the guidance of an individual member of staff. You will often have a choice of modules so that you can tailor your programme to your own interests.

In addition to reading the information we provide in our 'Continue your studies' pages, we would strongly encourage you to talk to academics, postgraduates and personal tutors in your discipline, to understand fully their motivations for pursuing postgraduate level study and the possible career options such study might present. Also, why not research the organisation/sector you may want to work for eventually and see if they require a postgraduate degree.
