Conversion courses

Find out how to change direction and explore a new subject with a postgraduate degree.

What are they?

Postgraduate study could be your opportunity to change direction and explore a new subject, or gain the qualifications you need to pursue a professional career you might not have considered before.

Conversion courses are designed to prepare you for a career unrelated to your undergraduate degree, and are available in a range of subject areas, including law, management, marketing, property, IT, journalism, psychology and teaching.

Callum Scott, Nottingham Law School

Callum studied an undergraduate science degree at NTU, but a work placement inspired him to switch to law.  He studied a legal conversion course part-time whilst working in NLS Legal.
