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. Note that some MSts require relevant industry experience.
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.
Select the course you wish to study from the MSt course directory.
Download the MSt application guide which gives details of the process and what you need to do and consider as a potential applicant. You can either print it out as a handy reference or use it electronically.

MSt handbook for University staff
If you are involved in delivering MSt programmes, you may find this handbook useful. It has been designed as a guide to the proposal, approvals and administration processes of MSts and is not intended as a guide for students.
The MSt was a remarkable gift. I learned as much from my classmates as I did from the professors. There is something to be said about being in an environment that makes you want to be a better person, in all aspects of life, not just in academia.
