About the programmes
The Education MRes is a research degree designed to meet your individual academic and professional needs and enable you to develop and extend your mastery of theory and practice in education research, including research methods and methodology. The programme supports the development of autonomous and critical education research and research-informed practice. It also specifically aims to consolidate your academic skills including writing for publication and includes a year-long research project. On completion of the MRes you will have a comprehensive foundation for further postgraduate research at doctoral level and high-level research-based and research-informed professional practice.
The MRes also forms the first stage of Professional Doctorate in Education (EdD) which is a seven-year part-time programme designed to support those who have supporting formal or informal learning as part of their role, to research an aspect of their practice. Cohorts have included FE and HE lecturers, school teachers as well as individuals with staff development roles in a range of organisations. In the final five years students complete a 60,000-word thesis.
An MA in education or a related discipline and a minimum of four years professional experience is normally required when applying for the MRes/EdD but we welcome applicants with relevant, high level professional experience.
