You take five taught courses during your MRes (and at least three further courses during the first year of your PhD). Which courses you take depends on your prior training and the requirements of your chosen PhD pathway. An initial set of modules will be chosen by the MRes/PhD Programme Director in consultation with your supervisor prior to the start of the academic year. You can apply for changes to the chosen portfolio of courses during the first week of Michaelmas Term, though the final decision on your individual course portfolio lies with the MRes/PhD Director.
The research coursework is complemented by practical research training overseen by a faculty supervisor. Informal opportunities to develop research skills also exist through mentoring by fellow research students and other faculty members. You are integrated into the research culture of your subject group and expected to attend their and other research seminars.
You can see some of the courses that may be relevant to your MRes on the MPhil in Finance, MPhil in Innovation, Strategy & Organisation and MPhil in Strategy, Marketing & Operations webpages. Please note, some courses are only offered every other year. In addition, you might be able to take some courses not listed here, run by other departments within the University of Cambridge.
