We’d like to invite you to pursue further study with us. The University of Southampton offers Web Science Postgraduate courses.

Our pioneering one-year MSc in Web Science analyses the Web at a systems level; on the one hand investigating the technical capabilities of its distributed information infrastructure whilst also scrutinising the public policy and social practices that have made it a transformative global phenomenon.

Our four-year Integrated PhD in Web Science will equip students to become leaders in the Digital Economy. The programme begins with a one-year taught programme followed by a research programme considering the impact of the Web on society and involves input from industry and government partners.
