We are one of very few Geography Departments in the UK to offer Masters by research programmes in Physical and Human Geography. These degrees are a great option if you: -Want to pursue a Master’s programme with more flexibility and dedicated time for your own research. -Are considering doing a PhD but would like a taste of what a research-led degree can offer first. Our MScR degrees can be upgraded to a PhD after 1 year provided the student is performing to a satisfactory level and funding is available. -Want to gain a high level of skill and experience in an area that is not well covered by taught MSc programmes either in Bristol or elsewhere.
MScR programmes can be carried out full time (1 year) or part time (2 years). Fees are paid by the student (unless otherwise stated in the project outline), and research costs covered by the supervisors. Details of fees can be found here. While this is a research-led Master’s programme, we offer students the opportunity to follow relevant courses of their choice during the programme.
We are advertising within five main themes (see below). If you cannot find what you are looking for, please contact us at [email protected].
