Course Summary

This programme enables you to conduct in-depth research into a science, technological or social science focused aspect of geography. They are aimed at students who wish to focus primarily on achieving a research-based masters-level qualification. With close support and guidance from subject-specialist academics, MRes students typically conduct in-depth research in human geography (social science, arts and humanities aspects of geography), while (Sc) MRes students focus on a scientific or technological aspect of geography. It may be possible to transfer to a PhD at the discretion of the school. Our culture of interdisciplinary study and knowledge transfer enables us to generate high-impact research that influences government public policy, private enterprise and third sector organisations. Recent graduates have gone on to careers in the public, private and third sectors, including national and local government departments and regulatory agencies and charities. Many use this degree as a foundation for further study via a PhD. Many of our PhD students continue in the academic field, either at the University of Nottingham or elsewhere. Other recent graduates have gone on to work for organisations such as the Environment Agency, Centre for Ecology and Hydrology, Experian, the Forestry Commission, and business and professional service firms.
