Course summary

An MSc by Research is a master’s level course during which you carry out a research project in your specific area of interest working under the supervision of an academic member of staff alongside the rest of their research group.

This is not a taught course and does not require completion of specific taught modules. The MSc by Research is often a popular choice for those who wish to see if they are suited to a research programme and can provide a valuable steppingstone to those wishing to embark on a PhD programme.

Assessment

You will be required to write up the results of your research project in a thesis which will be examined by at least two examiners. In some cases, an oral examination by be requested, but this is at the discretion of the examiners.

Although there are no formal taught modules for an MSc by Research, all research students are still required to complete the iDTC graduate training programme.

Career

An MSc by Research will show potential employers that you have the motivation and commitment to complete a substantial piece of work independently. The MSc programme can enhance your technical ability and chemical knowledge, as well as improve your transferable skills, making you a strong potential employee. Our previous MSc students have gone on to work for a variety of chemical companies as well as other industries and sectors.

Other MSc students choose to continue their studies and have successfully embarked on PhD programmes at York, around the UK and the rest of the world. The MSc programme provides a valuable insight into the demands of a PhD giving you the opportunity to see if a research programme is the right choice for you.
