York St John University offers a range of Postgraduate options available for students wishing to continue their studies.
There is the option to undertake a taught Postgraduate degree – which has a similar structure to an Undergraduate degree – seeing you attend lectures, seminars and tutorials whilst being assessed regularly.
There is also the option to go down the research route, where you’ll be able to take charge of your own studies (with guidance from a supervisor throughout), choosing a topic to learn about in-depth. There are no exams or essays involved but instead students hand in a thesis at the end of their programme.
Research students at the University benefit from relevant training and access to research networks, as well as access to the Graduate Centre, which has everything from meeting room facilities to flexible workspace and telephone access.
Tuition fees for UK students on a taught degree are £6,000, while research students pay £4,350. International students on a taught degree or research degree pay £12,500.
