Have you just graduated? Not sure how your undergraduate degree will help you kickstart your career?

Or are you already in work but looking to re-focus your career?

QMU’s School of Arts, Social Sciences and Management offers a range of ‘conversion’ courses ideally suited to recent graduates seeking a vocationally focused postgraduate qualification, and those already on the career ladder who want to give themselves a competitive edge or re-focus their career.




Nearly all of our courses are available to study on both a full-time and part-time basis, with some offering ‘ block’ teaching, allowing you to develop your career while juggling your existing commitments.




You might be an English Literature graduate looking to move into public relations, or an art graduate looking to move into digital campaigning.

"Within the School of Arts, Social Sciences and Management at QMU, we have think our postgraduate qualifications are particularly distinctive because we've kept in mind that amount of students who might want to change career or come to a new subject. As such, all of our qualifications are suitable for people to come a subject for the first time."
David Stevenson, Head of Division, Media, Communication and Performing Arts
