Course details

All MRes and ResM students study the modules, researching dance and research in the arts and humanities. You’ll also attend individual tutorials with your supervisor and regular research seminars. Both programmes lead to either a written thesis or one combining critical writing with creative/professional practice. While the MRes can only be studied full-time (12 months), the ResM is available either full or part-time. Having completed your taught modules in Year 1 (whether full or part-time), your following year will involve an agreed tutorial schedule and work plan. You may attend additional training, workshops and research seminars. As a full time ResM student, you’ll submit your thesis after 18 months (part-time, after 24 months) or pay a nominal sum for up to six months additional ‘writing up’ time (part-time, 12 months). Your viva takes place following submission of your thesis. To discuss which route is best for you, contact the programme leader.
