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.
