The University of Exeter offers a Masters by Research in an outstanding international research-active environment. With the recent technological developments in Biological Sciences, in particular post-genomic technologies leading to data rich research environments, many students are finding that conventional taught courses cannot adequately cover their research needs and ambitions.
The degree provides the opportunity to carry out a supervised research project leading to a formal postgraduate qualification, without the longer-term commitment of a PhD. It is ideal if you are interested in pursuing a specific shorter-term research project, perhaps whilst working. The programme offers you the flexibility to shape your research in an area of particular interest to you.
This course can be studied at one of two campuses -
