Master of Studies (MSt) degrees

The MSt is an academically-rigorous, part-time master’s degree containing a significant taught element and a research project, usually undertaken over two years.

Taught elements are normally broken down into discrete modules and research projects may be work-related, if appropriate. The programmes are designed to be flexible in order to support students in varying circumstances, including international students.

Cambridge MSts are tough: we offer a lot and we expect a lot. But if you have the commitment, the ability and the motivation, you can expect great rewards.

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.
