About the course

Through the MA by Research (MAR), you'll conduct an original piece of independent research that will provide you with an in-depth understanding of your chosen discipline. 

You'll be guided by an academic supervision team, who'll be leading experts in your field, attend research training sessions and have regular meetings with your supervisors. The MAR can be considered ideal preparation for undertaking a PhD in that it is also entirely research-based and does not (at least formally) include any taught components.


At the end of your studies, you'll submit a 30,000-word thesis, which is assessed through a viva voce examination involving two examiners other than your supervisor.
