Geography - Research

The School of Geography offers two Research Masters programmes. These degrees are suitable for students who want to carry out research either with the view to progressing towards a PhD degree in the future or simply gaining the skill set that accompanies investigative research. The two degrees on offer are:

•MLitt (Human Geography)
•MSc (Physical Geography)

The Research Masters Programme includes several measures designed to support you in achieving your academic and professional objectives. One of these measures is the requirement of each student to have a Research Masters Panel. The purpose of the Research Masters Panel is to support and enhance the supervisor-student relationship, to monitor your progress during the course of your doctoral studies and to provide advice and support both to you and your supervisor(s). A further measure of support is the possibility to complete taught modules at the early stages of your study.
