Two-year masters

At GCU, we will equip you with a unique set of skills that make you attractive to employers all over the world and ready for a challenging global workplace. Study with us and undertake an extended masters course with an industry placement to provide you with practical work experience alongside a high quality, internationally recognised UK education.

Why study a two-year masters at GCU?

Choose from a wide range of two-year masters courses at Glasgow Caledonian University London. You will get the chance to develop your knowledge and professional skills with an extended work placement in the UK or elsewhere. The two-year masters degree provides the same benefits as a regular masters, with the additional advantage of gaining valuable experience through an additional trimester of professional practice.

You will benefit from our focus on practical, vocational learning as well as our strong connections with industry and third sector employers. You will be fully prepared and supported when choosing your professional practice route and securing your experience. You have the option of five different routes once you are on the programme to make it what you want it to be for your next career move:

  • Work experience - gain work experience with an employer in the UK or abroad.
  • Consultancy project - work on a project briefed by an industry partner while on campus and report back to the company.
  • Intercultural competence - enhance your intercultural competences through international student exchange.
  • Entrepreneurial bootcamp - participate in a bootcamp and follow your entrepreneurial development plan.
  • Research assistantship - gain project management and research experience through joining and supporting a GCU London based research project. 

The professional practice trimester will take place after the first two taught trimesters before returning to campus to complete your final master research project. Graduating with this significant work experience will equip you with the in-depth knowledge and understanding of your chosen sector and the skills to translate that knowledge into practice.
