Master of Studies (MSt) degrees

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.

Please note that due to Government policy changes we are no longer able to accept TOEFL language test. Please contact the Admissions team if you feel this affects your application.
