1) Three Psychology MRes Studentships
The Department of Psychology is offering three funded (fees only) MRes studentships this year.
We are also happy to consider self-funding students. Information about MRes fees can be found here.
An MRes can be conducted full-time over one year or part-time over two years.
The student completes an extended research project (thesis: 20,000-25,000 words) with the support of a dedicated academic supervisor/s.
The MRes is suited to UG students who:
- Have enjoyed the research project (dissertation) component at UG level.
- Want to explore a particular research question within the field of Psychology, broadly defined.
- Want to develop a future career in research.
As it is not based on traditional campus delivery, the course is also suited to students who have less scope to be on campus at particular times in order to take part in scheduled class-room teaching. However, while convenience is an important consideration, this is a research degree and you will be required to conduct PG level research.
In the first instance potential students should look at the available MRes Psychology projects on offer within our three key research areas: Cognition & Behaviour; Health Psychology; Sex and Gender:
Once you have identified a potential project/s, you should contact the relevant member of staff named on the research project.
Then, if the member of staff is supportive, you can proceed to complete and submit the application form.
The application includes a research proposal, building on the specific Psychology project you have identified, of up to four A4 pages.
Applications should be emailed to Research Admissions by May 29th 2017.
