The Master of Research in Urban Planning is designed primarily, although not exclusively, to enable you to link a course of substantive research training to the subsequent pursuit of a doctorate. The course is modular in structure and includes training in spatial planning and in research methods and methodology. You will undertake a dissertation of 15,000 words and will also have the opportunity to become involved in research projects of Brookes’ Oxford Institute for Sustainable Development.
The MRes consists of five core modules, an optional module, and the dissertation, representing 190 master’s-level credits in total. Research methods modules include: -The Philosophy of Research -Qualitative Methods and Inquiry by Design -Statistical Research using SPSS
The dissertation comprises Research Design and Strategies and the dissertation itself.
The two core substantive modules are: -Spatial Planning in Action -Planning Theory
The option can be chosen from an array of modules in the planning studies fields offered within the department, such as planning in developing countries, transport, tourism and urban regeneration. Routes also exist which enable you to take two core modules from the fields outlined above.
The PGDip and PGCert are available as exit awards only, the PGDip requiring 130 credits and the PGCert requiring 70 credits.
Admission is normally open to those with a good honours degree (or equivalent), a postgraduate diploma or an equivalent professional qualification. Applicants are required to submit a research proposal.
