Overview

The Master of Science usually consists of two parts: coursework and a thesis allowing for students to investigate areas of interest to them and conduct independent and original research. Over 30 subjects are available, and some can only be studied at postgraduate level, which can allow for specialisation in academic and career pathways.

For more information about why students should consider studying a postgraduate science programme at UC, see the Postgraduate Prospectus.

The MSc may be awarded with Distinction, Merit or Honours.
