Master of Research
Year 1 (i.e. BPhil) consists of advanced disciplinary coursework focussed on the exploration of research frontiers in Environmental Sciences.
Year 2 (i.e. MRes) consists of a masters level research training program tailored to a novel research project that culminates in the completion of an original thesis.
Year 1 Research Frontiers
32 credit points of advanced coursework, including tailored individual units working with Environmental Sciences staff.
Information regarding the recommended enrolment pattern for BPhil/MRes in Environmental Sciences and supplementary information for Year 1 coursework (shell units and advanced topics).
Year 2 Research Training
32 credit points of structured research, where MRes students will:
- Extend their knowledge of research innovations in their discipline;
- Survey the current literature related to their particular research interest;
- Study the latest research methods in their field;
- Plan a major research project;
- Receive training in project management;
- Complete a significant individual research pilot project of their own design.
How To Apply
BPhil/MRes applications are accepted for Session 1 (January) and Session 2 (July) admissions. Students that have already completed a Master of Science (MSc) or a similar degree may be eligible for direct entry to Year 2 of the program. More information about the application process and deadlines.
