Course content

Our MSc by research provides the opportunity to combine academia with a creative flair. Study with us and deliver key research on a leading area of expertise, from signal processing for acoustics to audio for virtual reality.

The focus of your work will be an independent research project. We provide training which will equip you with skills in a wide range of research methods to support your growing expertise. Your research will culminate in a thesis, which is usually around 15,000 to 20,000 words long.

You are encouraged to take advanced taught courses to help fill any gaps in background knowledge required for your research project. The choice of courses taken will be made together with your supervisor at the beginning of the programme.
