Our MSc Research programmes are aimed at anyone who currently only has an undergraduate degree or who has a taught Masters degree in a non-subject-specific area, who wish to undertake a PhD at the Business School.

An MSc Research develops your skills as an independent researcher in your chosen subject. We provide both an MSc Research in Management and Business and an MSc Research in Accounting and Finance. These are preparatory one year courses designed to prepare candidates for the following three years of PhD research, and cannot be applied for separately from the PhD programme. This is also known as the 1+3 route.
