What is a Taught Master’s degree?

A Taught Master’s degree is similar in format to an undergraduate degree course, as they involve a series of taught modules, lectures, seminars, practical work, coursework, examinations and independent study. When students complete their modules, they will be assessed on the knowledge and skills they have learned, through coursework or an examination. Students will also be assessed through a research project, dissertation and group work.

A full-time taught Master’s degree typically takes one year to complete; however, part-time courses will be available at some universities. At the end of the degree course, students will obtain a Master of Arts (MA), Master of Science (MSc), or a Master of Business Administration (MBA) qualification, this will depend on the subject that they studied.

Students will prefer a taught Master’s if they enjoy studying through lectures, coursework and assignments, and who already have an undergraduate degree.
