Course Description

The MRes Programme is a Facultywide, cross-disciplinary research training course with an Education strand which provides high quality training to potential doctoral students as well as a stand-alone qualification to train social science researchers. The Programme has four broad aims to enable students to review systematically, and to evaluate critically: - alternative approaches, methodologies and paradigms of research in social and educational enquiry - the application of these approaches in the specific areas of social and educational enquiry in which students are specialising. And to: - support students, within an active research community, in identifying and investigating their own original research questions - equip students with the skills to contribute to research projects using any of the main methodologies of the social sciences. Students will study the following units - Principles and Skills of Social Research - Introductory and Advanced Quantitative and Qualitative Research Methods - Contemporary Issues in Educational Research. In addition, students will undertake a Long and Short Research Apprenticeship Project and a Dissertation. Depending on your research interests you will be placed within a research group or cluster, which will in the course of the year have seminar and reading group activities that you will be invited to join. You will also spend a small period of time shadowing an experienced researcher. Our department has a broad range of research interests that focus on aspects of: - Educational Policy and Globalisation - Educational Philosophy and Theory - Sport and Physical Activity - Educational Policy, Organisation and Change - Diversity and Difference Unique Funding Opportunities This programme is recognised by the Economics and Social Research Council (ESRC) as satisfying the criteria for Master?s level research training and students are therefore eligible to apply for ESRC funding for MResPhD (1+3) programme.
