There are two main types of study at postgraduate level: taught and research. The majority of postgraduate courses are taught, but what exactly does this involve?

Taught postgraduate courses are delivered through in-person or online teaching, usually delivered by a lecturer or professor who specialises in the subject area. Teaching will often involve aspects such as:

  • lectures
  • seminars
  • workshops
  • practical activities

Students who have completed an undergraduate degree will likely be familiar with this teaching style. At postgraduate level, taught aspects are usually more advanced, with aspects of independent research also required.
