Course Introduction

This MRes prepares students for more advanced research projects at MPhil/PhD level, but is also a degree in its own right. It's ideal if students are considering a taster year of research, or if they keen to complete shorter term research at graduate level. The aim of the MRes is to expand knowledge and understanding of their chosen topic. Students will carry out independent research under the guidance of a supervisor, and in the context of a structured programme of study. This programme will enable students to develop transferable skills, including enhanced communication and discussion skills in written and oral contexts, the ability to analyse and evaluate different textual materials, the ability to organise information, the ability to assimilate and evaluate competing arguments. The graduates have gone on to pursue careers in publishing, journalism, public relations, teaching, advertising, the civil service, business, industry, the media.
