A Master’s by Research degree allows you to focus on independent research rather than being taught. Your independent research will normally develop your existing knowledge of a subject and focusses on training researchers for a professional career or preparation for a PhD.

WMG offers the opportunity to work with academics and industry leaders, enabling you to benefit from researching within a department with real industrial relevance and globally renowned business focus to enable you to stay ahead of the game within the changing needs of industry.

During the MSc by Research programme, you will develop your research in your chosen subject area, supported by supervisors from academic and industry backgrounds, you will submit your research as a final single thesis to show your research findings for final examination.
