Psychology MRes

Study Details

MRes: 1 year full-time

The MRes programme provides training in a set of analytical and practical research skills that will thoroughly prepare students to continue on to a PhD. The programme is ideal for students who are thinking about continuing their studies to PhD level, but it is a highly flexible course that will be useful for many different career paths. The centrepiece of the program is an independent research project culminating in a dissertation.

As an MRes student you can conduct your own independent research in any area in which the Department has expertise. Research areas may include adult cognitive psychology (language, memory, perception, action and attention), comparative psychology, social and personality psychology, and applications of psychology.
