MRes English is available full time (one year). If you wish to study part time, the ResM pathway includes the same taught modules and also leads to a written thesis. Unlike the MRes however, you can submit your thesis after 24-36 months. You’ll study two taught modules providing you with the expertise to excel in your 22,500 to 25,000 word thesis. In term one you’ll take research methods and debates, gaining both discipline-specific skills and an understanding of current debates in English. Assessment will revolve around contextual study or literature review, communication skills and subject-specific frameworks. Research in the arts and humanities is cross-disciplinary and taught via six all-day workshops in terms one and two. It’s assessed by a research portfolio and presentation. Finally, the thesis is taught by intensive one-to-one supervision. Students may devise a topic of their choice, but are encouraged to choose an area of staff expertise to gain maximum support and guidance.
