The course lasts 6-8 semesters, during which time you can gain the knowledge you need to get a job or lay the foundations for a master's degree.



If you want to deepen your knowledge or gain more specialised knowledge, you should apply for a Master's degree. You can go on to a Master's programme if you have a bachelor's degree, and the exact entry requirements are set by the institutions. Courses usually last 2-4 semesters.



Those planning a research or more theoretical career can apply for an accredited doctorate (PhD) and a Master of Arts (DLA) after completing a Master's degree. Doctoral students carry out research under the supervision of a supervisor, which they can publish and present at conferences.
