The MRes programme provides training in a set of analytical and practical research skills that will thoroughly prepare students to continue on to a PhD. The programme is ideal for students who are thinking about continuing their studies to PhD level, but it is a highly flexible course that will be useful for many different career paths. The centrepiece of the program is an independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
As an internationally renowned research department we have a vibrant community of research postgraduates. We offer full-time and part-time research degrees leading to MPhil and PhD qualifications in all areas of research covered by members of faculty. We offer both a PhD in Psychology and a PhD in Cognitive Neuroscience and Neuroimaging.
We provide a stimulating yet supportive atmosphere, combined with access to research facilities that are second-to-none. Our research postgraduates work closely with leading researchers in their chosen field and their projects are often published in top international journals.
