Master's degree subjects

Subject benchmark statements for subjects studied at master's level 

We have published subject benchmark statements for master's degrees in the following areas, some of which are integrated with honours degrees in the subject.

Development of the master's level statements

The decision to develop the master's level subject benchmark statements followed from a discussion event on benchmarking in February 2006. A further round table discussion meeting in December 2007 provided an opportunity for participants to share and explore perceptions, experiences and concerns surrounding the delivery of UK master's programmes and the wider context for UK higher education in Europe.
