You’ll share a breadth of experience – the multi-disciplinary nature of our research methods teaching means you will share a broad experience of methodological and research issues, allied with subject specific supervision, allowing you to develop a unique awareness of knowledge and experiences across the natural and social sciences in addition to a focus on your own research topic.
