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.

While course delivery styles vary from subject to subject and professor to professor, what remains constant throughout is the emphasis on developing alternative view points on contentious issues and developing fresh perspectives.
