The Oxford Master of Research in Psychology is a unique programme jointly run and taught by the Oxford Brookes University Department of Psychology and the University of Oxford Department of Experimental Psychology. It offers a general training in research methods in order to enable graduates in psychology or related disciplines to develop the essential skills to become a competent investigator. The MRes is a suitable programme for those who plan to go on to a doctorate, for those who would like to work as research assistants, or for professionals wishing to develop their own research in relevant areas. Research at Oxford Brookes enjoys an international reputation, attracting high quality staff and students and helping to generate major funding for projects.
