Programme description

This is a one-year full-time research degree and provides the opportunity to carry out a substantial research project as well as gain valuable skills and knowledge through a tailored taught package. This programme will normally consist of a 135-credit research project and additional 45 credits of taught content, creating a standard 180 credit postgraduate MSc programme.

The taught units are chosen under guidance of the research supervisor from a selection offered by the School. The selected units are assessed before completion of the research project and the dissertation is submitted in September. This programme is therefore designed to allow students to combine masters level taught modules with research skills and training development.

Subject to satisfactory progress, it is possible to transfer to PhD at the end of the degree, requiring a further two years full-time study.
