Course summary

Course description

MSc Research Methods is a research intensive master's designed for those who wish to continue on to PhD and/or are considering embarking on a career in research. It has a strong focus on developing research skills combined with further study in international development.

The MSc is designed to comply with the research training requirements for two ESRC scholarships as administered by the North West Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (NWSSDTP): the three-year PhD scholarship (commonly termed +3) and the four-year scholarship that covers an eligible one year master's and a three-year PhD (commonly termed 1+3).

The course is ideal if you want to apply for an ESRC scholarship through the NWSSDTP or a School of Environment, Education and Development scholarship. NWSSDTP approved master's must meet the minimum research training requirement expected by the ESRC.

Aims

You will:

  • develop as a well-rounded researcher who is able to access the full range of research in relation to international development;
  • actively and practically engage with research methods used in the context of international development;
  • attend introductory PhD research training lectures, seminars and tutorials and get a taste of life as a PhD student.

Career opportunities

MSc Research Methods is ideal if you are considering PhD study and/or a career in research in international development.

The Global Development Institute (GDI) will equip you with the skills for specialist positions in development-related NGOs and public and private organisations.
