Develop in-depth knowledge and skills of research methods. Prepare yourself for an academic or professional career with a focus on social science research.

The Master of Research is a faculty-wide, cross-disciplinary research training course with an education strand. It provides high-quality training to potential doctoral students as well as a stand-alone qualification for social science researchers.

Depending on your research interests you will be placed in a research group within the Department of Education, which will have seminar and reading group activities that you can join.

You will also spend a short period of time shadowing an experienced researcher.

The course aims to:

  • teach you to systematically review alternative approaches, methodologies and paradigms of research in social and educational enquiry
  • enable you to critically evaluate the application of these approaches in the specific areas of social and educational enquiry in which you specialise
  • support you within an active research community, in identifying and investigating your own original research questions
  • equip you with the skills to contribute to research projects using any of the main methodologies of the social sciences

South West Doctoral Training Partnership

This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply and funding guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.
