The School of Geography offers the opportunity to work at doctoral level alongside academics whose research has been internationally recognised. You will have the chance to work within a supportive academic community, sharing ideas and experiences with the aim of advancing knowledge.
Due to the nature of postgraduate research programmes, the vast majority of your time will be spent in independent study and research. In addition to this, you are strongly encouraged to attend School seminar and guest speaker events, and engage in a range of research and skills training opportunities in support of your studies. You will have meetings with your academic supervisor, however the regularity of these will vary depending on your own individual requirements, subject area, staff availability and the stage of your programme.
The MSc by Research involves writing a Master's thesis under the supervision of a member of academic staff on a topic to be agreed with your supervisor. The MSc by Research is usually awarded based on the quality of your thesis and your ability in an oral examination (viva voce) to present and successfully defend your chosen research topic.
First or second class honours degree in Geography or related discipline.
