Preparatory study

If you have been offered a place to study one of our MSc courses then you may like to do some preparatory reading prior to the start of the course - particularly if you have been out of education for a while. The recommended reading for each Masters course varies according to the course modules.

You can find a list of preparatory reading for your chosen MSc using the buttons below.

Applicants may like to get a head-start on modules, or explore any unfamilar topics, using these reading lists.
