A Master's by Research (MRes) course allows you to embark upon a research degree by undertaking a research project at Master's level which will be assessed via submission of a thesis and a viva voce. This course allows you to explore a specific research question that interests you. By undertaking this degree within our Faculty of Management your research project will be developed in collaboration with our academic University staff who will provide you with specialist knowledge and supervisory input, while accessing BU's technical facilities and information resources.
We are looking for students to undertake a Master's by Research in all aspects of our subject areas: Tourism & Hospitality, Events & Leisure, Sport, Retail management, Accounting, Finance & Economics, Marketing and Business & Management.
You will also be part of BU's wider postgraduate community and have access to the suite of research, professional and personal training offered through the Doctoral College and your Academic faculty.
We strongly encourage collaboration across specialisms, and an MRes provides an opportunity to work with supervisors from various backgrounds to deliver truly impactful research.
