Course content

The MRes programme, available full-time and part-time, will give you advanced theoretical and practical training in postgraduate level research.

You’ll conduct a substantial research project, which will give you valuable experience whether you’re preparing for a career or looking for continuous professional development.

The taught programme comprises one ‘core’ (SOCR501 Introduction to Research) and one ‘optional’ module (either SOCR507 Advanced Qualitative Methods, SOCR508 Advanced Quantitative Methods) to a total of 60 credits.

The research dissertation no shorter than 25,000-30,000 words provides the remaining 150 credits (i.e. 83%) of the programme, emphasising the focus on research.

You can expect regular (at least fortnightly) supervision so this is an excellent research training opportunity, with a respected Masters qualification at the end.
