WANT to Change Direction?

Northumbria offers a range of postgraduate courses that you can study after an undergraduate degree in a different subject area.

Limited places left on some of our full-time and part-time on campus Masters programmes. £250 fee waivers available to help you 'Change Direction'. T&Cs apply.

You probably chose your undergraduate degree when you were 17 years old. Have you changed since then? Have your career aspirations changed too?

Don’t worry, the hard work you put into your first degree wasn’t for nothing: you’ve developed a vast range of valuable graduate attributes. By combining those skills with a Masters in a completely new subject, you can open the door to a career that suits who you are today.

Our Masters courses start from only £5,665* – a fraction of your total undergraduate fees. And with the Government’s £10,280 postgraduate loan** now available, the path to your dream career has never been more affordable.

All of these courses offer a chance to change direction, and you can apply for most of them with an undergraduate degree in any subject:
