Degree Type
Duration Description
MSc
1yr FT
2-3yrs PT
Master’s degrees are delivered through a combination of taught modules and assessed coursework.
They are generally modular in structure, meaning that you will follow a series of taught modules
worth a total of 180 credits.
MSc by Research
1yr FT
2yrs PT
Typically one year full-time, two to three years part-time. This is an individual research project
written up in a thesis of 30,000 words.
MPhil
2yrs FT
4yrs PT
Candidates are required submit an individual research project written up in a thesis of 60,000
words and assessment is in the form of an oral examination (viva). In some cases, there may be
opportunities for you to upgrade to PhD during your studies.
MRes
1yr FT
2yrs PT*
Available in science and engineering disciplines, the aim of the MRes is to provide relevant training
to acquire the knowledge, techniques and understanding needed for a professional career or for
progression to higher academic studies. The MRes is achieved through a combination of taught
modules (worth 60 credits) and a research thesis which presents the outcome of a significant
research project (worth 120 credits).
*Part time option only available for some programmes.
PhD
3yrs FT
6yrs PT
You will undertake supervised research either independently or as member of a team. Assessment
is by means of a thesis of 100,000 words which must demonstrate your capacity to pursue original
research and should represent a distinct and significant contribution to the subject.
EngD
4yrs FT
The Engineering Doctorate aims to prepare engineering students for research careers in industry and
is fully supported by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). This four-year
scheme consists of one year of taught modules followed by an industry-linked research project.
