Welcome to the College of Arts at the University of Glasgow. We have a diverse community of over 1,000 students on Masters, Diploma or Certificate programmes and who are working in innovative and transformative disciplinary and interdisciplinary fields.  

Across the College’s four Schools we offer a broad range of different taught PGT programmes, from traditional disciplines to practice-based programmes. Our staff and students work in a dynamic and exciting environment, based on cutting edge research. Studying a PGT programme at University of Glasgow means you will be part of a rich and stimulating learning environment and a thriving PGT community. 

We are looking forwarding to working with you, and are always pleased to hear from future, current or past students!

Information for Postgraduate Taught Students

If you are a new postgraduate student starting one of our taught Masters, Diploma or Certificate programmes, then this page is for you.

This page contains details and links for some of the most important contacts and sources of information that will be key to helping you to make the most of your time here at Glasgow. These will be particularly important as many of you will be joining us remotely at least for the beginning of your programme.

The most important contact you have will have is with your Programme Convenor or Programme Director. This is the member of academic staff who leads your Masters, Diploma or Certificate programme. They are the person most familiar with the courses you will take and the assignments you will do, and they will be in communication with the other members of staff you are likely to encounter during your programme. You have almost certainly already heard from them, but if you do not know who this is, please contact us at arts-pgt-advising@glasgow.ac.uk  and we will put you in touch.

Another important point of contact is with your School’s Postgraduate Office. The staff there will be able to help with common problems to do with registration or enrolling on courses, or other issues to do with your course choices and student record. 

If you are not sure which School you are in, see the list of programmes in each School by clicking on the links below.
