The MRes is ideal if: - you cannot commit to a PhD but still have a topic you want to research further

  • your topic doesn't require three-years of PhD study

  • you want to develop your research and academic skills before starting a PhD

Our specialisations Nineteenth-century art and cultural exchange - National identity

  • Intercultural contact

  • Migration

  • Innovation

Collecting, reception and revival - Display

  • Imperialism

The MRes is a substantial piece of original work and can be ideal for people with highly focussed interests but limited time. It can also be an advantage when applying for PhD funding as it demonstrates research skills and ability. This is a companion to the Art History MRes. The requirements and supervision arrangements are the same but the title of your final degree is different.
