Creating a postgraduate master’s course

Scottish postgraduate courses


From AY 2020/21 you can add postgraduate courses for Scottish students as a postgraduate course rather than an undergraduate course.

You can do this in the same way you would add your other postgraduate courses.

  1. Select Add a Course.

  2. Choose the correct Study mode. Only Scottish providers can select part-time study mode.

  3. Select Postgraduate funding level.

  4. Select Scotland from the domicile options.

    This image shows the Add a Course screen with the Postgraduate and Scotland options selected.

  5. Select Continue. You can now enter the remaining course details.

For qualifications, you will have 3 options in the dropdown menu: Postgraduate Diploma, Research Master’s and Taught Master’s.

This image shows the qualification menu for Scottish postgraduate courses.

Once you select the qualification, the relevant duration options will become available: 

  • postgraduate diploma: 1 year full-time and 2 or 3 years part-time
  • master’s (research and taught): 1 or 2 years full-time and 2, 3 or 4 years part-time

For the course fee, you should enter the full amount. If your course is more than one year in duration, split your fees equally across all years of the course.

You should complete all other fields as normal.
