About

The MSc by Research programme can be tailored to your individual research needs.

You will first take an induction course leading to the production of a learning contract with a research supervisor and subsequently develop a research proposal that forms the basis of the rest of your study.

You will then progress to a period of independent research project work and complete a project dissertation. Upon successful completion of the MSc, you will have clearly demonstrated your ability to meet the required high levels of technical professionalism.
