Welcome to the Postgraduate Handbook. The Postgraduate Handbook includes the programme frameworks for all of Durham University's postgraduate degree programmes with taught components, so that you can check: which modules are compulsory on your programme; whether you have any optional choices; and if you do have optional choices, how many you have and the extent of the choice open to you. To view the framework for your degree programme, use the Programme Lists facility below.
Programme regulations should be read in conjunction with the Core Regulations for Postgraduate Programmes.
The Postgraduate Module Handbook also contains descriptions of all the postgraduate modules offered by the University, including the content of each module and how it will be taught and assessed. For guidance on using the handbook, including a glossary and FAQs, please see our Programme & Module Handbook pages in sharepoint.
Please note: this is an archived handbook for a previous year. For the current year use the links at the top of the page.
