About our degrees
Imperial offers many different options for postgraduate study. Which route is right for you will depend on a number of factors, including the level of degree you currently hold, which subject you are interested in, and your career goals.
Our Master's courses include a taught programme of lectures, seminars and labs (if appropriate to your subject). You will also have the chance to master new techniques and skills by completing a significant piece of research. We have a range of qualifications available to suit your specific career goals.
The main aim of any research programme is to carry out original research that furthers knowledge in your chosen subject field. This will involve working under the direction of one or more supervisors who is an expert in your field, and sometimes as part of a team, with other students and staff.
