The Master of Research (MRes) degree is an advanced postgraduate research degree which is especially focused on preparing students for doctoral research.
The MRes usually takes 12 months of full-time study. The main difference between a taught MSc and an MRes is that the course structure is more flexible than a taught Masters degree and requires candidates to complete a research dissertation (typically 15-20,000 words) informed by independent research, or a practice-led research project.
The MRes provides structured research study and is a great place to begin your research career. If you’re thinking about studying at PhD level the MRes will give you a taste of what it’s like to complete a doctorate.
UWS normally requires MRes candidates to defend their dissertation thesis (viva voce examination) for successful completion of an MRes degree.
