Master of Science (MSc)
These cover our science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programmes, as well as courses in Nottingham Business School, psychology, and law enforcement. These are a good choice if you work well with quantitative analysis and technical methods.
Master of Arts (MA)
These are awarded if you’re studying one of our creative, arts, humanities, or selected social science courses. They often involve research, discussion, essay writing, portfolio work, and practical exercises.
Master of Business Administration (MBA)
This prestigious qualification is highly valued by employers and provides key business knowledge. Our internationally accredited business school provides full-time and part-time MBA options. A part-time MBA is known as an Executive MBA (EMBA).
Master of Laws (LLM)
An LLM allows you to study your chosen area of law in depth and boost your legal career prospects.
Master of Fine Arts (MFA)
This practice-based qualification in the creative arts can be tailored to your needs. Our MFA Fine Art will prepare you for the rigours of contemporary practice as both an artist and researcher.
This professionally-recognised qualification is an important step towards becoming a registered architect. You will need to have already completed an undergraduate degree in Architecture before progressing on to this course.
Master of Research (MRes)
This qualification incorporates your own research activities, supervised by an experienced academic. It is ideal if you want to gain specific research training or prepare for a PhD. There is still a large taught element, focusing on research methodology and training. At NTU we class this as a taught rather than research qualification.
