What are integrated masters programmes?

Our integrated masters programmes are undergraduate programmes that contain an extra year of study at postgraduate level. Combining undergraduate and postgraduate study into a single continuous programme.
An integrated masters degree allows you to gain a broad knowledge base from your undergraduate studies and then progress to more advanced or specialised work at postgraduate level.
Most courses are four years long, with part-time routes and an optional sandwich placement year available for select courses.
The Faculty of Health and Faculty of Science and Engineering both offer integrated masters programmes.

Why study a four-year degree over a three year alternative?

Our integrated masters programmes are perfectly designed to enable you to:
  • stand out from the crowd
  • enhance your research journey
  • improve your future career direction
  • fast track your career
  • advance your subject or clinical knowledge
  • develop leadership, managerial and research skills.

The MPsych programme gave me the time to develop my research skills further, I am now much more confident in these skills. It has given me the skills needed to conduct individual and corporate research. I enjoy being given the freedom and resources to pursue research I’m interested in.

I think the University offers some of the UK’s best courses with incredible lecturers, who do some really interesting research in their own fields, as well as being in an amazing location: close to Dartmoor and right by the sea. Studying at the University helped me to develop my theoretical knowledge and helped me to implement this knowledge in a practical manner: which is what attracted employers to me.
