Postgraduate Study

We offer a wide range of opportunities to study for postgraduate study as well as research degrees to meet your requirements at every stage of your career.

Postgraduate diploma and masters programmes

We offer postgraduate programmes both here on campus in Leicester and by distance learning. You can find out more about each programme by following the links below.

The UK Government has confirmed that EU students starting courses in 2018-19 will have access to student financial support for the duration of their courses. EU students will continue to remain eligible for undergraduate, master’s, postgraduate and advanced learner financial support in the academic year 2018 to 2019. The decision means EU students applying for an undergraduate or master’s course at an English university or further education institution in the 2018 to 2019 academic year will continue to have access to student loans and grants, even if the course concludes after the UK’s exit from the EU.
