Course content

The MRes in Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control course aims to provide advanced study in Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control within the European Community and a on a global context. Students attending the course will have access to brand-new state-of-the-art laboratory facilities that provide hands on experience essential for experimental analysis.

This course is ideal for students who are looking for an alternative to an MSc, are interested in carrying out shorter research projects or for students who wish to tailor their studies to suit their own research interests and/or career objectives. An MRes will significantly enhance a student’s CV and improve future employment prospects. During their studies, students will develop a range of transferable skills that are relevant to careers in industry, academia and the public sector.

In addition, our MRes will develop communication skills, critical analysis and presentation skills as well as giving students experience of conference attendance and working with large bodies of complex material. An MRes can also be used as a stepping stone for students wishing to continue to an MPhil or PhD, either as a precursor or initial component of the research.
