Masters courses

We offer a wide range of postgraduate masters degree programmes across our five faculties. Full-time masters courses typically last for one year.

Masters entry requirements

A bachelors degree from a recognised university will be considered for masters entry. Check course details in our Postgraduate Prospectus to see whether your chosen course requires the equivalent of an Upper Second Class (2:1) or Lower Second Class (2:2) degree.

For honours degrees, requirements are the same as those for UK bachelors degrees (honours). For ordinary degrees, requirements are typically 70% for courses requiring a UK 2:1, and 60% for course requiring a UK 2:2.

Research courses

Our PhD courses, available across a wide range of subject areas, typically include three years of full time research followed by an optional writing-up period of one year to complete your thesis.

PhD entry requirements

A masters and bachelors degree from a recognised university are usually required for PhD entry, although exceptional students may be considered for PhD entry without a masters qualification.

See the masters section for guidance on the grades we typically require from Australian universities. These will vary depending on the university where you have studied and the course you are applying for at Nottingham.

You should identify possible supervisors at Nottingham before applying and prepare a research proposal to submit with your application.
