Learning & teaching
This course is delivered via a mixture or lectures, tutorial, practical laboratories and research seminars.
You'll be assessed via a mixture of written assignments, formal examinations, lab-based assessments, poster presentations and team projects.
The final MRes thesis is assessed orally in a viva voce examination.
An MRes will significantly enhance your CV and improve future employment prospects.
During your studies you'll develop a range of transferable skills that are relevant to careers in industry, academia and the public sector.
In addition, our MRes will develop your communication skills, critical analysis and presentation skills as well as giving you experience of conference attendance and working with large bodies of complex material. An MRes can also be used as a stepping stone for students wishing to continue to an MPhil or PhD, either as a precursor or initial component of the research.
