Taught Masters

This is a challenging yet inspiring programme. I’ve learnt to think for myself, work independently and take initiative while maintaining a strong sense of belonging in a large and diverse cohort. As well as examining cutting-edge research and industry best practice, you have the motivation and methodology behind studies explained to you in person by those that conducted them.
