Course summary

The MSc by research is a one year degree (if taken full-time). It involves writing a Master's thesis under the supervision of a member of academic staff on a topic to be agreed between the supervisor and the student. Submission is required no more than three months after the end of registration, although submission before the end of registration is encouraged where possible.

The MSc by research is assessed wholly on the basis of the thesis although the course may include an individually tailored element of taught courses to be taken in the early stage of the year. Work on the thesis is guided by regular meetings between student and supervisor and monitored by two meetings of the student's Thesis Advisory Panel, usually to be held in November and March (for October starts). The thesis must contain a substantial piece of research which includes some original work. This could include new ideas, or original commentary on (or amplification of) material which is currently considered to be at the forefront of mathematical knowledge.

MSc by research students have access to all of the transferable skills training programmes available to MPhil and PhD students and will be expected to take part in the induction week (usually the first week of the Autumn term), as well as taking the online Becoming an Effective Researcher course from the Research Excellence Training Team which is obligatory for all research students.
