Postgraduate Courses

We’ve designed our postgraduate programmes to help give Manchester Met students a competitive edge in the employment market.

We liaise with our colleagues in practice to understand their needs, and the challenges that they face in the field. This allows us to create a range of professional, specialised, and relevant postgraduate training that reflects these needs.
