Summary

Develop in-depth knowledge and skills of research methods. Prepare yourself for an academic or professional career with a focus on social and public policy.

The MRes Social Policy is designed for those developing careers as policy analysts or applied researchers in national or international social or public policy organisations or government departments; and prospective PhD students in social or public policy.

You’ll develop in-depth knowledge and skills relating to the research methods used to analyse, compare and evaluate social and public policies. You'll be supported in identifying, investigating and realising your own original research within an active research community. We encourage a diverse intake in terms of experience, qualifications and interests, to stimulate mutual experience and learning.

South West Doctoral Training Partnership This MRes is recognised by the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC), specifically, as part of the larger South West Doctoral Training Partnership (SWDTP). It can be taken as a course in its own right, or if you hold an SWDTP studentship you can take the 1+3 (MRes + PhD) pathway.

If you wish to be considered for a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, then you must apply for your preferred PhD route and not the stand-alone MRes. You should follow our how to apply guidelines.

For those holding a 1+3 SWDTP studentship, progression from the MRes to the MPhil or PhD stage is dependent on an acceptable level of achievement.

Graduate prospects Our graduates generally go on to work in a wide variety of organisations and roles, such as: - social research in universities and research institutes, government, business, voluntary organisations and international organisations

  • public policy analysis at local, national and international levels

  • public information provision and campaigning within organisations concerned with wellbeing, sustainability and social justice
