Taught programmes on offer at LJMU lead to the following qualifications:
Many taught programmes at LJMU can be studied full or part-time, enabling students to complete their course over a short period of time or extend their learning duration to allow for work and/or family commitments. Students who choose to study part-time will spread the cost of their tuition over their chosen years of study.
Teaching quality for LJMU’s postgraduate courses is excellent – lecturers are leaders in their field, working with global experts to develop a learning plan that will prepare students to become future leaders. While there is still lecture and contact time, there is also the opportunity for more independent study, giving students the chance to shape their own education.
Research is central to the student experience at LJMU and informs the curriculum at all levels.
The University is a leading research institution, with 96% of its research rated as international quality or better (Research Excellence Framework 2014).
Postgraduate students are able to enroll in a research-based PhD qualification. Research areas including Art and Technology, Brain and Behaviour, Educational Research, Evolutionary Anthropology, Health Research, Literature and Cultural History, Public Health, and Sport and Exercise Science.
PhD scholarships are available to help fund research. These include fully-funded scholarships and fees-only options.
Some LJMU programmes can be studied remotely via distance learning. Not all courses are available in this way, but students can enquire through the LJMU website to find out more. Remote learning takes the form of recorded lectures and videos, email and video-conference tutor sessions, and the chance to access the vast digital study resources that the university has to offer.
Students who prefer distance learning can study part-time too, making it easier to fit their chosen qualification around their home life and other commitments which may limit them from attending the university in person.
