The MRes programme allows you to undertake a research project at Master's level which would be assessed via submission of a thesis and a viva voce.
You can set out to find the answer to a particular research question and will have the chance to delve more deeply into a subject area that you are passionate about.
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 facilties and information resources.
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.
