We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Our Masters by Research degree allows you to undertake extended independent research at Masters level.
You'll carry out a research project on a topic of your choice, with expert guidance from a single supervisor or two co-supervisors, and use your findings to produce a thesis of around 30,000 words.
Unlike a Masters degree, a Masters by Research degree doesn't include any taught content. Instead, you'll work closely with your supervisor to agree the content and structure of your research project, as well as your process and schedule.

To apply for our Masters by Research degree you'll need a bachelor degree with a 2:1 (hons) in English Literature or a related subject. If English isn't your first language you'll also need an English language qualification such as IELTS or TOEFL.
We accept a range of alternative qualifications for both academic and English language qualifications.
You'll submit a research proposal as part of your application, so you'll need to have a well-defined idea of what you'd like to research before you apply.
