Taught degrees are usually one year Masters programmes, based upon a structure of lectures, seminars and tutorials. Durham follows a modular system and students will normally have a number of core modules which they are required to study. Students then have the opportunity to select a number of optional modules which they would like to study. Taught courses normally begin at, or shortly before, the beginning of Michaelmas Term in September or October.
The postgraduate taught route is ideal for students who prefer a structured framework for their studies but one which also allows a certain degree of flexibility and scope for building research skills. ECS offers an excellent environment for postgraduate study. The School's postgraduate prospectus contains further information.
These pages will tell you all you need to know about studying for a taught Masters degree at ECS whether you are coming from the UK or if you are an international student.
