The School of Geography at the University of Nottingham is offering four new Research Masters from September 2009: Masters of Research (both MRes and MRes Sc), an MA by Research and an MSc by Research.
These courses are suitable for students who wish to focus primarily on undertaking a research-based Masters level qualification, with the option of taking up to 60 credits (a third of the degree) through taught modules. All students will be allocated two supervisors from the academic staff of the School of Geography, appropriate to research interests. Meetings between students and supervisors will take place on a regular basis to provide advice and guidance and ensure that students are are fully connected to the research community in the School of Geography. These degrees offer the opportunity to experience what it is like to do a full PhD degree, but without the requirement to undertake three years of study.
