Postgraduate Taught Subject Overviews

Check out our Subject Overview pages below to gain an insight into our postgraduate subject areas.

On each Subject Overview page, we describe what makes QMU distinctive in that subject. We set our approach to teaching and learning, as well as the research expertise that underpins our teaching, and information on career prospects. Each page also provides links to more information individual courses within that subject area, and includes student testimonials.

All of this information is designed to enable you to make informed choices about studying with us.

Don’t forget that we offer postgraduate open evenings, and virtual open events (for those at a distance) to help you find out more about individual courses.  


The University is offering an additional 10% discount on postgraduate tuition fees to this year’s QMU graduates and alumni, on top of their existing 10% discount, when they apply before the end of July 2020 for a programme commencing in 2020/21. This makes the total discount 20%. This additional discount is in recognition of the challenging circumstances that the COVID-19 pandemic presents, and the uncertainty for this year's graduates in relation to the job market.
