Postgraduate masters degrees
We have an expanding programme of exciting masters degrees which offer opportunities for the advanced study of aspects of European culture, European Union and European history, as well as the theory and practice of translation.
All Masters degrees are taught by academics who are internationally recognised for their expertise and scholarly publications, as well as being very passionate about modern languages and culture.
We offer the following taught courses:
Teaching in masters degrees is mainly conducted through seminars, which enables in-depth academic debate and discussion in small, relatively informal, groups. Each course is assessed through a combination of module-based essays or exams at the end of the Autumn and Spring Semesters, and then a supervised research dissertation written during the summer, on a topic of your choice.
The academic quality of our master’s degrees is recognised internationally. We attract students from all over the world and postgraduates are highly desired by employers in a wide range of careers and professions.
Our Postgraduate Open Day will provide you with an ideal opportunity to find out more about postgraduate study at Cardiff as well as experience the majestic surroundings, the warm and friendly atmosphere or the infectious buzz of the city. The next annual Postgraduate Open Day will take place in November 2014.
In addition to Cardiff University Scholarships, there may also be funding available for postgraduate study from a number of other bodies or organisations to help you finance your studies.
