You may start your postgraduate study with just one module and qualify for a Postgraduate Award. Alternatively, you may wish to aim for a full Master’s degree or a Doctorate from the start. All postgraduate taught study at Warwick's Centre for Education Studies is organised in modules as follows:
• Core and optional modules: 30 CATs (5,000 word assignment)
• Research projects and dissertations: 60 CATs (20,000 words)
Depending on how many relevant modules you successfully complete you will receive an appropriate qualification. For a Master’s degree you need to complete 180 CATs. If you are registered for a Master’s degree, but need to terminate your studies for some reason, you can still leave with a qualification. Depending on your completion point, you may be awarded a PG Award (provided that the module has been approved as a PG Award), PG Certificate or a PG Diploma.
