This course will provide you with an excellent opportunity to focus your research interests on one or two areas of science, whilst also working towards translating your learning into research-related outputs. Examples of such outputs include submission for a peer-reviewed publication, peer-reviewed research/knowledge transfer grant application and presentations. You will also develop a wide variety of skills, experience and competence throughout your studies.
The course is taught by our experts within the Faculty of Science from the Schools of Biological Sciences, Earth and Environmental Sciences, Health Sciences and Social Work, Pharmacy and Biomedical Science, and Departments of Geography, Psychology and Sport and Exercise Science. Their teaching is underpinned by their leading-edge research.
The course is run in conjunction with the University Graduate School, giving you the option to conduct either two smaller research projects or a single larger project.
Teaching and assessment
Teaching on the course will generally be from the Graduate School Development Programme (GSDP) in addition to regular tutorial sessions with your supervisory team. There will also be opportunities to attend additional taught sessions that take place within the relevant school/ department. The assignments for the course will assess the broad issues associated with preparing, developing and conducting research, culminating in a research project.
On completion of this course you will have moved to the next level of qualifications with the advantages that this offers in terms of learning and employability. You will also be in an excellent position to apply for any related doctoral training programme, research assistant positions, graduate teaching positions or general researchrelated roles.
