The MRes is a research-based qualification with a taught component that is of an equivalent standard to an MSc. The programme enables you to experience a variety of internationally competitive research areas, predominantly in academia but also potentially in industry. If you register for an integrated MRes/PhD, MRes/MD or MRes/DDS you will be allocated projects that are relevant to your proposed PhD or MD, or DDS programme.
