Course Summary

Develop in-depth knowledge and skills of research methods. Prepare yourself for an academic or professional career with a focus on international development.

This course combines the academic study of key international development issues with a comprehensive exploration of research methods and skills, and offers a detailed examination of current and applied international development research.

It supports the application of knowledge and skills to address contemporary research questions, and comprises a mix of faculty-wide research-based units and departmental disciplinary-based specialisations.

South West Doctoral Training Partnership

This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply and funding guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.
