New Masters of Research & MA/MSc by Research degrees

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.

Further details and application forms are available here or from Jenny Ashmore, Postgraduate Research Administrator, School of Geography, The University of Nottingham, University Park, Nottingham, NG7 2RD. Tel: 0115 951 5575. Email: . Potential applicants should give an indication of their area of research interest and include a brief research proposal with their application.

MSc in Financial Services and Society

Starting in September 2009, the University of Nottingham is offering an MSc in Financial Services and Society, for which I will be the Course Director.  This interdisciplinary Masters provides a research-led teaching and learning programme on money and finance within the context of the disciplines of Business, Geography and Law.  It will provide students with an understanding of contemporary monetary and financial systems and will equip students with critical evaluation of core theoretical and empirical developments within the social sciences to equip them for research related careers.

It is available both full-time (one year) and part-time (two years) and it is possible to apply for funding to support your studies sufficient to cover fees at the UK/EU rate.
