An MRes is a Masters programme with more research than taught elements, a ‘Research Masters’. If you undertake the MRes in Agriculture you will need to successfully complete any two modules from the MSc Sustainable and Efficient Food Production and the Research Methods module. You will then work with designated supervisors on a 120 credit work-based dissertation.
Candidates must hold at least a second class Honours degree in agricultural or biological science, or a closely related discipline. Applications from mature candidates with relevant experience are welcome and will be given equal consideration.
Non-graduates must have at least 24 months of relevant full-time work experience in an agri-food industry. Relevant experience will be determined by the University. If you have employment experience which you consider may be equivalent to a degree, please give details of positions held, dates of employment, responsibilities within the position held and employer contact details on a separate sheet.
