  • What is a MSc/MA/MPH?

    A Masters (MSc/MA/MPH/MDPH) degree title can vary but the nature of the training is broadly similar, following a taught module structure which results in a written dissertation. A Masters degree is primarily aimed at graduates seeking to further their knowledge in a specific area having studied at undergraduate.

    Certificate and Diploma options are often available, providing opportunity to follow selective modules without the requirement of the dissertation. These options are ideal for individuals seeking to gain intensive experience in a particular area for continuous professional development.

    Individual programmes may vary, but the typical structure follows: 8x15 credit modules plus 60 credit dissertation (total 180 credits) taken over 12 months full-time or 2-5 years part-time.

    What is an MRes?

    A Master of Research (MRes) degree provides preparatory training for academic research and is an ideal choice for individuals looking to eventually progress onto a PhD and develop research careers. For those wishing to gain research skills within specialist areas before committing to a PhD, the MRes provides such opportunity.

    The structure of the MRes programme is weighted towards research, with research placements forming between 50-75% of the training and assessment. The majority of our MRes programmes provide an initial introduction to research methods, followed by seminars and master-classes focusing on key areas of the subject. These provide a theoretical framework for the practical research experience that follows.

    There is opportunity to review the latest literature on the subject and become familiar with emerging research developments. Following this, projects are offered spanning various areas and offering complementary experience. In some cases, two project rotations are then taken, whilst in others one extensive project is followed. In both instances, the aim is to provide experience of undertaking independent research within that subject area. The research project forms the basis of an assessed dissertation.
