Master of Education by Research (MEd/MRes)


Course Description

We offer two Research Masters by Thesis degrees. The Master of Education by Research (MEd) normally takes two years to complete for full-time study and four years for part-time study and requires submission of a 70,000 word thesis. The Master of Arts by Research in Education (MA) normally takes one year to complete in full-time study and two years in part-time study and requires submission of a 50,000 word thesis.

If you are interested in undertaking a research degree which requires in depth research into a topic of your choice, but do not wish to commit to a full PhD, then one of these programmes may be for you. As with the PhD, your research topic will need to align with the interests of a potential supervisor - you can find further information on current research within the department on our current research pages and staff listings.

Visit the Master of Education by Research (MEd/MRes) page on the Durham University website for more details!
