Masters by Research programmes provide an opportunity for independent study within a structured academic environment. The research programme which is agreed with the supervisor will be designed to provide an effective training in research methods within the discipline area selected.
MA/MSc by Research students enrol for 1 year full time or 2 years part time and are expected to submit for programme approval within one month of enrolment.
Programme approval involves completion of a research proposal and submission of this to the Research Institute who will arrange a review process.
Assessment is by submission of a thesis followed by a presentation and oral examination.
Applicants for a research degree should have a good honours degree (2:1 or above) or masters degree or equivalent in the relevant subject area.
For MSc/MA by Research a good honours degree is required in the appropriate subject.
