The MRes program is a full-time 1 year degree by research, and differs from an MSc in placing more importance on the research project. This degree will equip you with confidence and competence in the latest research skills and allow you to apply for further research training (PhD) programmes or to directly apply for research positions in universities or research institutes.
The course is composed of a taught component covering important generic skills such as literature searching, health and safety aspects, grant proposal writing, introduction to statistical manipulation of data (60 credits), and a research dissertation (120 credits). Your project plans will be developed as part of the generic skills component in association with your supervisor. As this is an important component of your degree, you are encouraged to approach a potential supervisor (information on staff research interests can be found on the relevant websites: School of Ocean Sciences, School of the Environment and Natural Resources, School of Biological Sciences) before you make a formal application.
What sort of careers will this train me for?
As well as finding specific employment based on the specialist knowledge acquired during postgraduate training, your general employability will be enhanced by evidence of your ability to work independently, think analytically and innovatively, and ability to conceptualise and question. During your studies, you will also have the chance to develop essential professional skills such as good communication, teamwork and leadership skills and enhance your practical experience.
