This programme might be for you if you want to undertake advanced study without writing a dissertation, if honours degrees aren’t recognized in your country, or if you would like to study part-time over a longer period.

You can use a completed PGDipArts with a GPA of 5.0 or higher as an entry qualification for the one-year Master of Arts.
