You can set out to find the answer to a particular research question and will have the chance to delve more deeply into a subject area that you are passionate about. Your research project will be developed in collaboration with our academic University staff who will provide you with specialist knowledge and supervisory input, while accessing BU’s technical and infromation resources. You will also be part of BU’s wider postgraduate community and have access to the suite of research, professional and personal training offered through the Doctoral College and your academic faculty. We strongly encourage collaboration across specialisms, and an MRes provides an opportunity to work with supervisors from various backgrounds to deliver truly impactful research. The MRes is focused on the development of generic research knowledge and critical analysis skills applied to independant research on an approved topic. You research would normally involve a literature study, an experimental or hypothesis-testing phase, an evalutation phase and a writing-up phase.

Careers: Undertaking a research degree will not only allow you to carry out research in a specialist field, it will also equip you with transferable skills that can be applied to roles within project management, commercial research and development, or consultancy services. You may decide that you would like to pursue a career within academia, developing the research that you undertake during your MRes and sharing your expertise with others who have an interest in a similar field.
