Entry requirements

The normal entry requirements for enrolment on a MA by Research is an upper second honours degree (2:1) from a UK university or a qualification of an equivalent standard, in a discipline appropriate to that of the proposed programme to be followed. For applicants whose first language or language of instruction is not English you will need to meet the minimum requirements of an English Language qualification (the minimum of IELTS 7.0 overall with no element lower than 6.5, or equivalent will be considered acceptable). Further information on international entry requirements and English language entry requirements is available on our international webpages.

Course content

A Master's by Research (MA) allows you to undertake a one year (full time) research degree. It contains little or no formal taught component. Such programmes are attractive to those wanting a briefer research degree than a PhD.

Research Master's students choose a specific project to work on and have a greater degree of independence in their work than is the case with a taught masters course.
