Course summary

The Masters by Research provides you with the opportunity to develop the knowledge and research skills that are essential foundations for further research and an academic career, while also being advantageous in relation to a range of other career pathways. Covering both practical and theoretical aspects, the focus is on acquiring the knowledge and skills to design, conduct, evaluate and disseminate your own research. You will also acquire a range of skills that are highly sought after by employers, including the advanced ability for critical thought. The Masters by Research has been designed to suit candidates from a range of backgrounds and disciplines. It is particularly suitable if you aspire to a research-based career or as preparation for undertaking a PhD.

Research degrees are focused on independent study, allowing you a great deal of control over the pace and direction of your individual research project, with the expert guidance and support of your supervisor(s). The first element of the MRes (research project registration) will be assessed through the production of a research proposal, a project management plan and a skills development portfolio. This will take place after approximately three months if you are studying full-time or six months part-time. The skills and experience acquired through an MRes will provide ideal preparation for progressing to higher research qualifications, such as MPhil and PhD, or pursuing a research-based career.
