Course content

The MRes programme provides training in a set of analytical and practical research skills that will thoroughly prepare students to continue on to a PhD.

The programme is ideal for students who are thinking about continuing their studies to PhD level, but it is a highly flexible course that will be useful for many different career paths. The focus of the course is on acquiring the knowledge and skills to design, conduct, evaluate and disseminate psychological research.

You will acquire these skills through seminars, independent study, and through hands-on experience in one of the research labs in the Department. The course structure is highly flexible and allows you to either sample research from different fields, or concentrate in a research area of your interest.
