The MRes programme is fully integrated with your PhD. During the MRes year you acquire tailored foundational and methodological training for your doctoral work and are introduced to the frontier of academic knowledge in your chosen discipline.

The Master of Research (MRes) route to our PhD is designed specifically for students with experience at masters level in a subject relevant to one of the following PhD pathways:


Taught modules are assessed by essay, coursework, individual presentation or group presentation. The 16,000 word dissertation mark counts for 50 per cent of the final mark.

Continuation to the PhD is subject to performance on the MRes programme. You continue to the PhD if you obtain at least 60 per cent in each of the six modules separately and at least 70 per cent in your dissertation. The pass mark for obtaining the MRes degree is 60 per cent.
