Course content

The MRes is designed to meet the needs of research careers in rapidly changing academic departments, businesses, and national or international institutions. Primarily by enabling students to produce a substantial piece of independent research, this degree provides a wide-ranging and systematic training in research skills, a deeper understanding of the subject and, by acquiring very useful management skills, the ability to define, plan, and complete research projects. Thus, this programme provides students with skills and competences necessary for acceptance as professionally trained researchers in a range of subjects.
