Course description

The Master of Research in Management  is awarded in recognition of the successful completion of an approved programme of training and research.  Students will pursue a programme of training and research which combines advanced study, research methodology and a substantial research project, or series of research projects.

It is a one year Master's degree which is designed to give students the opportunity to both develop their knowledge of specialist areas of business and management and develop the research skills essential for doctoral research. Many students who complete an MRes go on to apply to study a PhD.

Fees

For entry in the academic year beginning September 2016, the tuition fees are as follows:

  • MRes (full-time)
    UK/EU students (per annum): £7,700
    International students (per annum): £15,500

The fees quoted above will be fully inclusive for the course tuition, administration and computational costs during your studies.

All fees for entry will be subject to yearly review and incremental rises per annum are also likely over the duration of courses lasting more than a year for UK/EU students (fees are typically fixed for International students, for the course duration at the year of entry). For general fees information please visit: postgraduate fees . Always contact the department if you are unsure which fee applies to your qualification award and method of attendance.

Self-funded international applicants for this course will be required to pay a deposit of £1000 towards their tuition fees before a confirmation of acceptance for studies (CAS) is issued. This deposit will only be refunded if immigration permission is refused. We will notify you about how and when to make this payment.

Funding

The University of Manchester is offering a number of postgraduate scholarships for full-time, self-funding UK/EU students, holding an offer of a place on a master's course beginning in September 2014. You do not need to have studied your undergraduate degree at The University of Manchester, but need to meet a range of specific criteria - to find out if you are eligible, please visit our website .
