Course summary

With the fields in Science & Technology constantly evolving, there are always exciting opportunities for research projects that can make a real difference to people's lives and lead to new developments in these areas. The MRes programme allows you to undertake a research project at Master’s level which would then be assessed via submission of a thesis and a viva voce.

You can tailor your studies to your specific interests or career aspirations, such as; computing, design, engineering, environmental sciences, games technology, psychology, archaeology or anthropology.

You can set out to find the answer to a particular research question and will have the chance to delve more deeply into a subject area that you are passionate about.

Your research project will be developed in collaboration with our academic university staff who will provide you with specialist knowledge and supervisory input while accessing BU’s technical and information resources.

You will also be part of BU’s wider postgraduate community and have access to the suite of research, professional and personal training offered through the Doctoral College and your academic faculty.

We strongly encourage collaboration across specialisms, and an MRes provides an opportunity to work with supervisors from various backgrounds to deliver truly impactful research.

The minimum completion time for the full-time course is 12 months with flexibility to take up to 18 months. If you would prefer to complete the course part-time, the minimum completion time is 24 months with flexibility to take up to 36 months to complete.
