Postgraduate study

Explore horizons you never thought possible

Postgraduate study gives you the opportunity to specialise in the field you are passionate about and advance your knowledge to the highest level.


Whether you're a new graduate at the start of your career or returning to study, the knowledge and experience you’ll gain during your postgraduate degree will enhance your career prospects and help you stand out from the crowd.


In 2020, to help our local community and economy recover from the impact caused by Covid-19, we are also offering a Being Enriched Postgraduate Discount. This discount will offer a 20% reduction on our fees for selected Master’s and Postgraduate programmes starting between the 1st of August 2020 and the 31st of July 2021 to enrich and enhance the skillset of those living or working in the North West who have been furloughed, made redundant or whose jobs are at risk as a result of Covid-19.
