The Masters of Research (MRes) programme provides students with the required research skills and methodologies to allow them to successfully undertake a doctoral degree. The breadth and depth of the skills provided also enables students to pursue a wide range of careers in European politics. The programme consists of 2 semesters of taught courses and a dissertation module during which students write a 15,000 word dissertation on a topic of their choice and under the supervision of an experienced member of staff. Our MRes programmes are fully recognised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC).
