The programme aims to provide high quality training in the methods and practice of research and in complementary tranferable skills. The MRes degree serves as a qualification in its own right or as an enhanced entry point to the PhD programme.
In addition to covering specialist subjects and research techniques, the course will help students with their transferable and personal skills such as presentation skills, communication, negotiation, time management and team-working.
The programme is designed to individuals who have developed expertise in computing/mathematics/information systems/information science through a first degree (or equivalent) in a cognate subject.
The MRes is divided into four modules of study comprising three 30-credit modules covering research methods and subject-specific knowledge, and a 90-credit individual research project.
