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.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Per 6 April 2015 only the English language tests from IELTS and Trinity College London are accepted for Tier 4 Visa applications to the United Kingdom. Other tests (including TOEFL, TOEIC, Pearson, City & Guilds) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. 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. Since the Trinity College London language tests must be taken in one of their exam centres in the UK, IELTS is now the only language test accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK that can be taken worldwide.
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.
All International/Overseas Research Degree Applicants for whom English is not their first language* are required to have an English Language qualification with IELTS (International English Language Testing System) or equivalent:
Please note that the test must have been taken no more than 2 years prior to application.
No work experience is required.

Only 30 minutes by train from central London, and you arrive at the University of Bedfordshire. Although a new University, it remains an institution with a rich heritage, and academic roots dating back to 1882. The University has a growing global reputation. The number of applications to the University has nearly doubled in two years (UCAS) and our popularity makes us the most upwardly mobile university in the country according to the Times Higher Education.
