Start with a short course

Our online short courses provide an alternative entry route to this online Masters degree.

  • Earn 30 credits’ worth of short courses that are part of this online Masters.
  • Then you can apply to transfer to the full Masters in the summer.

By completing 30 credits successfully, you’ll have proved you’re capable of learning at this level. So even if you do not hold the formal degree entry qualifications, you’ll be eligible to apply to the full Masters.

Study this Masters without a degree

You do not need to provide formal qualifications to start the entry-route short courses for this Masters. These online courses are self-evaluating. This means you decide whether you think you’re capable of studying them.

To help you decide if a course is right for you, we provide course-specific entry guidance on each course page to explain the level of teaching involved. If you’re unsure, contact us.

Get started in January 2021

To get started on the entry path, choose one of the courses listed below. Each is worth 30 credits towards the online MLitt Scottish Heritage degree. Both begin on 25 January.

To study part-time, we recommend you take no more than 30 credits per term.

To join a course, apply via the course page and follow the application and checkout process. Courses are available to purchase until one week after their start date.

Masters route not for you?

You do not have to transfer onto the Masters degree. Our online short courses give you the maximum flexibility in your studies. You can:

  • study each short course standalone, earning credits as you go
  • build up to a Postgraduate Certificate or Postgraduate Diploma instead
  • continue on course by course and transfer to the Masters when you’re ready.
