The MRes Economics programme is an intensive one-year taught programme which provides advanced training in economics, econometrics and research skills.
In recent years, PhD candidates have been encouraged to take an MRes-type qualification prior to commencing their PhDs so as to be able to develop a broad range of qualitative and quantitative research methods as well as starting to develop a more in-depth research proposal before embarking on their PhD - this programme is designed to provide high quality training to potential doctoral students.
Also, we have increasingly seen the greater need to collect, collate and analyse performance data in a variety of public- and private-sector organisations - this programme is also designed to be taken as a stand-alone qualification to provide social science research training.
This programme is therefore designed to suit those wishing to progress to PhD but also those needing research skills in their current profession.
