A Master of Studies (MSt) is a part-time Master’s degree. It is usually undertaken over two years, and contains a significant taught element and a research project with associated dissertation.
Cambridge's MSt programmes are designed to be flexible in order to support students with a variety of circumstances, including international students. Find out more about what an MSt involves.
The UK has voted to leave the European Union. It is not currently known how long that process will take or the impact that it will have on UK policy on higher education tuition fees, loans and bursaries. However, the University of Cambridge can confirm that Graduate Home/EU students who are already studying at Cambridge, and those who have applied or are applying to start their studies in the academic year 2016/17, will continue to be charged the Home/EU fee rate applicable at the time of their application, provided this continues to be permitted by UK law.
