Posted August 08, 2019 12:10:58The first postgraduate degree programmes were established in England and Wales in the early 1920s.
These are still held today.
A postgraduate certificate is a standard academic degree with a minimum of three years of coursework and usually a degree of BSc or better.
A certificate can also be earned by joining a postgraduate research programme, or by completing a master’s degree or PhD. As well as earning a degree, postgraduates can also have further postgraduate education, such as teaching, practising or consulting.
As of 2018, there are approximately 100 postgraduate degrees, which are mostly taught by accredited postgraduate students.
Some degrees are open to postgraduate students but not all of them, and some are not offered by universities in the UK at all.
Here are some of the best postgraduate programs in the world:DURHAM, Durham UniversityThe Dursley Postgraduate Training Programme (DTP) was established in 1926 to prepare students for careers in the fields of science and engineering.
The programme has seen the establishment of over 100 postgraduation programmes, including at the Dursleys’ own Royal Military Academy.
The DTP is run by the University of Durham.
This postgraduate course has a minimum four-year curriculum.
DURWOODY, Manchester UniversityThe postgraduate programme in Durovy has been held by the Durham Postgraduate Centre since the late 1990s.
Students undertake two-year courses in areas of research and the humanities, which usually take place in Durham.
The courses include a PhD in science or engineering, a BA in English or a Master of Arts in Philosophy.
In 2018, the Durovvys postgraduate program earned the top accolade for academic excellence in the North West region, which saw students take the top award for undergraduate study in the Midlands region.
MARKHAM, The University of Manchester The Markham Postgraduate Certificate (MPC) is the highest academic postgraduate qualification for postgraduate study in England, Scotland and Wales.
It is taught by a panel of more than 1,000 postgraduate experts and has been offered by The University’s Markham campus since 2000.
At the moment, the MPC is available to students from England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
It is open to students with at least two years’ postgraduate studies.
Markham’s MPC was founded in 1994, and it is accredited by the Association of Universities and Colleges (AAUCC).
The program is open for a limited number of students in the United Kingdom.
SUBMARINE, University of Oxford The Submarine Postgraduate (SP) program was established at Oxford University in the late 1970s to prepare postgraduated students for the careers in oceanography, marine biology, geology, and engineering associated with marine science.
Many universities now offer the postgraduate SP, which is taught primarily by the PhD-level students.
Students who complete the program can take a Doctor of Engineering or a Masters of Science in Engineering.
SPs are available to postgraduate applicants from England and Northern Irish, Scottish and Welsh Universities, as well as from other parts of the UK.
To qualify for the SP, you must have completed at least four years of postgraduate work and have two years of PhD work or postgraduate level experience.
Submarine graduates can also apply to become a research assistant or an engineering lecturer, which will prepare them for careers as engineers or scientists.

TAMAR, University College LondonIn 2014, the University College of London (UCL) opened a postdoctoral training program called the Tamar Postgraduate and Research Training Programme.
These courses take place between the ages of 18 and 30.
You can enrol at UCL as a postgrad, but you cannot receive any additional funding or help to support your postgraduate journey.
A Tamar postgraduate is usually funded by the National Health Service (NHS) and can study as an undergraduate or graduate student, or both.
TOMBROKE, University and College of SouthamptonThe Tombrooke Postgraduate Programme is the first postdoctoral degree programme in the UCL and the only one in the University’s College of Surgeons and Surgeons of Southampton.
While it is the most prestigious postgraduate in the country, students have to complete a minimum five-year course before they can take up the postdoctoral role.
Most students receive a Bachelor of Science degree.
There are also opportunities for students to undertake a Masters degree.
The Tombrell Postgraduate Scheme in the South West region of England was founded by the Tombrookes University and its postgraduate partners in 2004.
It has over 50 postgraduate programmes, and the majority of these students are first-year students.
