The Structured Masters by Research programme is designed to develop students’ research skills through a high quality programme of supported and structured learning. Core taught modules will introduce the student to the postgraduate academic community and support the student in conducting high quality, ethical research. The students will also select a number of research and specialist modules from across the university which meet their learning needs and interests. A personal academic supervisor will guide the student in selecting the most appropriate modules. An original research thesis must be completed as part of the programme.

This programme also provides the student the opportunity to continue to the structured PhD programme should they so wish.  Core modules taken as part of the Structured Masters by Research are counted towards credits required for completion of the sPhD programme.  Additionally, the skills learned in undertaking the Structured Masters by Research Programme equip the student for the  requirements of the PhD path.
