The MRes (Masters of Research) in Management is a one-year full-time Masters degree intended for students who are planning to become academic researchers and teachers or consultants, and who wish to prepare for PhD study in the area of management. The MRes in Management has two purposes:

* to provide intending PhD students with a good grounding in specialist subject areas
* to provide intending PhD students with the qualitative and quantitative research skills they will need in order to undertake their research

Progressing to doctoral research

Students with an MRes can apply to undertake the PhD in Management at Lancaster University. To proceed on to the PhD programme at Lancaster University Management School, students will need to achieve the required standard (usually a distinction or close to) in their MRes in Management. They will also need to have identified a relevant supervisor(s) and gained their agreement.

You will undertake additional research training courses as part of your PhD degree. These will be determined with your supervisor.

The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
