MRes SOCIAL SCIENCE RESEARCH METHODS
Assessment for Year 1
You will be assessed through a combination of coursework and examinations. You will also complete an independent Master’s research project.
Important InformationWhilst the University will make every effort to offer the modules listed, changes may sometimes be made arising from the annual monitoring, review and update of modules. Where this activity leads to significant (but not minor) changes to programmes and their constituent modules, the University will endeavour to consult with students and others. It is also possible that the University may not be able to offer a module for reasons outside of its control, such as the illness of a member of staff. In some cases optional modules can have limited places available and so you may be asked to make additional module choices in the event you do not gain a place on your first choice. Where this is the case, the University will inform students.

Additional entry requirements
Applicants should normally have a good undergraduate degree from a recognised higher education institution.
Applicants must submit a short (approx. 500 word) research proposal in support of their application and a proposed supervisor. You can find a potential supervisor on the people pages of each Schools webpages. This should indicate their initial thoughts about a possible research topic and should consider why the topic might be important, whether there is a research gap in this area, and propose a possible methodology for the investigation. Please note, however, that the final research topic will be finalised in discussion with supervisors at the start of the course.
