Course content

Develop in-depth knowledge and skills of research methods. Prepare yourself for an academic or professional career with a focus on international politics.

This Master's of Research (MRes) will provide you with the required skills and methodologies to undertake a doctoral degree. The breadth and depth of the course will also enable you to pursue a wide range of careers in European politics.

South West Doctoral Training Partnership

This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply and funding guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.
