United Kingdom[edit] Master's of Research degrees are increasingly popular with a number of the Russell Group Universities; such as Cardiff University, University College London, Imperial College London, University of Manchester, Newcastle University, University of Liverpool, University of Southampton and the University of London; as well as in universities with significant art and design departments, such as the Faculty of Arts (University of Brighton), University of the Arts London, and the Royal College of Art. In most cases, the degree is designed to prepare students for doctoral research.[1] For universities with significant strengths in Practice-led research, a research Master's degree preparation provides an opportunity for understanding the nature and potential of research study through, for example, art and design practice. Programme structure[edit] Research Master's degree programmes are different from taught Master's degrees by placing particular emphasis on a large dissertation (typically between 35-40,000 words), or an equivalent practice-led research project, in addition to fewer (or no) taught modules. Research Master's degrees programmes courses in the UK must guarantee that at least 70% of the content is project based as it is "geared to those wishing to pursue a research career afterwards."[2] This will often include training in Research Methods, as well as instruction in Research Ethics and professional practice issues such as writing proposals, making funding applications and publishing. Award instead of doctoral degree[edit] Some universities may award this degree to a doctoral candidate who has not completed the required period of study for a doctorate, but has completed a sufficient dissertation and taught content to be acceptable for an MRes. In most cases, however, a PhD candidate will step down to the level of a Master of Philosophy at British universities. The main difference between an MRes and an MPhil is that MRes sometimes (but not always) has taught components (although the main focus is still on research) and therefore might require a first year taught component during the doctoral studies. Research undertaken for a Master of Research degree is typically shorter in duration to that of an MPhil or PhD - around one year, as opposed to two or three, full-time. For humanities subjects, MPhil theses are typically 60,000 words (and PhDs 80-100,000), while MRes or MA(Res) are usually around 35-40,000 by thesis, or lesser for courses with a taught component (a mixture of smaller essays and a dissertation). Some universities[3] require an oral viva in addition to a written thesis for successful completion of an MRes degree.


Australia[edit] In Australia, a Master of Research is a postgraduate level research training degree. The program consists of a coursework component and a supervised research project, including a thesis of 20-25,000 words. An MRes is completed within two years, or part-time equivalent. The degree is currently only offered at a limited number of universities, having first being introduced at Macquarie University.[4] A Master of Research is typically undertaken as a pathway qualification to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD), or as training to provide professional research skills.
