MRes Programmes (Master of Research)

We provide a focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in your field of choice.


Our MRes programmes provide a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research. We offer three named MRes programmes:

All three programmes share the same module structure.The difference lies in the topic of the research project developed by each student. Find out more about these MRes programmes on the course page for the Modern Languages and Cultures MRes


We encourage you as an MRes student to engage with the vibrant research culture of our department. You can enhance your experience by attendig our research events and seminars. You will also be given the chance to participate in the PGR Presentation Day together with the department's PhD candidates.
