What is the difference between an MRes, an MSc or an MPhil?

An MSc is 67% Taught (120 credits of taught classes) and 33% Project (worth 60 credits). While an MRes is 33% Taught (60 credits of taught classes) and 67% Project (worth 120 credits). On successful completion of the MRes research project it is possible for good quality researchers to transfer to the PhD Programme (i.e. the MRes would be equivalent to the first year of the PhD).

Our MRes are aimed principally at graduates in civil and environmental engineering, earth sciences, bioscience, chemistry and chemical engineering. However the programme has also been successfully completed by others from an unrelated background such as business.

An MPhil has the same duration as the other degrees (one year) but is 100% research. There are no taught credits. Topic is chosen from Civil Engineering, Environment and/or Sustainability with the agreement of your supervisor.

Disclaimer: Only students who meet the quality criteria will be eligible and the Department reserves the right not to allocate all the awards if insufficient quality applicants apply.
