You may be evaluating projects, observing issues with IT and people using systems, or understanding why people reacted to a specific issue in the way they did. You may end up working for research agencies, social research departments within public sector organisations, private research companies such as Ipsos and Mori which are well known and third sector organisations.

If you don't want to study for MRes there are a number of options open to you which will add value to either your current career or allow you to consider a change of direction. The programme is very flexible so if you want to apply for this programme you can apply in any month of the year. You get great range of project work, presentations, essays and practice in communication.
