This MSc by Research degree allows you to pursue a one year individual programme of research that would usually finish after a year. But under appropriate circumstances, this first year may be used to progress to the second year of a PhD degree.
A recommended initial research training module forms the single taught element of the MSc, and is most suitable if you have a background in computer science or a related discipline and seek a wholly research-based programme of study.
