Course content

Our MRes programme will enable you to become part of our passionate research community, and gain specialised knowledge of entrepreneurship and innovation, as well as critical perspectives on different research methods.
If you have a passion for research, our multidisciplinary MRes programme will provide you with an opportunity to widen your skills, focus your interests and take the next step towards an MPhil or PhD.
Studying an MRes with the Institute for Innovation and Entrepreneurship will give you a fascinating introduction into the life of a postgraduate researcher. You will gain rigorous research and analytical skills, in order to progress onto high level researcher positions within your chosen sector or field.
Whilst a traditional taught master’s degree focuses on the development of expertise in a chosen area, an MRes places more emphasis on you to uncover new knowledge and develop your own research expertise. You will acquire in-depth training in the conduct and management of research, from its inception to its completion and dissemination. This will enable you to explore and reflect on your developing research skills in the context of your research interests.
