Gain an in-depth understanding of conducting social research, and use your skills to carry out your own research study on this specially designed MRes Social Research course. The course provides excellent preparation for social science doctoral study or for research careers in the public or private sectors. It fulfils the pre-requisite for studying a PhD at UWE Bristol through the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP) on the Health and Wellbeing pathway. Policy-making, planning and management across society and the economy needs to be underpinned by robust social scientific evidence. Focusing on the 'societal challenge' - how to promote public health and wellbeing - this MRes Social Research will give you the skills to critically evaluate existing evidence and conduct your own social research project with an interdisciplinary framing.
We normally require a honours degree of 2:1 or above (or equivalent if it is a non-UK degree) in a relevant subject. We can consider applicants who do not meet the normal entry requirement, but who do have relevant qualifications or professional experience. In your application, you should describe in detail your professional experience and qualifications. Shortlisted applicants will be invited to interview.
