Master of Science by Research (MRes/MSc)


Course Description

By taking the one year programme you take a smaller commitment but still get to experience full academic life. Your research during this one year will be just as impacting on the academic world as anybody's first year of PhD. The Masters programme allows you to dip your toe into your research field and, who knows, you might decide to go on to a PhD after all!

Not only can the MSc (Research) be ideal for you if you're not 100% sure that a PhD is for you, it can also be an ideal experience if you're interested in commercial or industrial research and development. Many Masters by Research students at Durham are supported by close connections with international companies that are looking to build strong industry-academia research links.

By joining us you would become part of a vibrant and supportive community of world renowned researchers, undertaking work that demonstrates both originality and relevance. Durham offers the opportunity to work with leading academic staff in state of the art facilities within a unique environment offered by the collegiate system.

Our community of postgraduate students contributes to a range of exciting projects at the cutting-edge of current research sponsored by both the public sector, third-party and industrial scholarships. This draws on the School's strong research collaborations and industrial links with a range of both UK and international funding organisations.

Part time or distance based study

Durham has many systems in place for supporting those students that want to or need to take their studies at a different rate to others. You may have a young family to look after or need to have a full-time job during your studies to support yourself. Unable to move to the wonderful city of Durham, the reasons are many. If you feel that part-time study or distance learning is the better option for you then keep looking at Durham. Your studies will be similar to a full-time student, except a lot more flexible and (obviously) you have twice the period to complete your research.
