Course summary

Overview Our MRes programme provide a personalised and focused introduction to postgraduate research allowing you to develop as an independent researcher with the support of an expert in Archives. It provides a rigorous overview of the current state of scholarship in your selected field, guides you, through a programme of directed, individualised reading, to the selection of a feasible research project, and allows you to complete a substantial piece of research. Why Archives and Records? Academic staff working in the research area of archive studies have extensive professional experience with strong international links as well as academic expertise. Their research interests range from medieval record keeping to contemporary public policy and open government.
