Studying Master of Research

The Master of Research (MRes) is an advanced postgraduate research degree mainly popular in the UK. It is awarded in a specific academic discipline that can be also reflected in the full degree name (e.g. Master of Arts by Research).

Master of Research degrees are relatively new but getting increasingly popular. In contrast to other Master's programmes such as the Master of Science or Master of Arts, the Master of Research is especially focused on preparing students for doctoral research.

The programme structure is hence usually more flexible and involves a comparably large dissertation based on independent research or a practice-led research project. The Master of Research can be similar to a Master of Philosophy (MPhil) and be awarded to students on the way to / instead of a Ph.D.
