Its aim is to provide two key ingredients for early-career researchers – transferable research skills and expertise in your chosen subject. You'll undertake an original project with experienced supervisors, and join the day-to-day life of a research group.

You'll develop the knowledge and skills needed to be an effective researcher, and prepare a publication-quality manuscript, grant application and conference presentation.

You can start this course in September or January (full time only in January).

**What you'll experience**
On this course, you'll:
- Learn research preparation skills such as personal effectiveness, research management, professional skills, networking, research organisation, science communication and impact

- Complete an extended scientific laboratory- or fieldwork-based research project

- Be supported by enthusiastic and qualified staff, who will help you develop advanced research skills

- Use our specialist laboratories, equipment and instruments

- Graduate with the skills and abilities needed for a career as a professional researcher

**Careers and opportunities**
You'll graduate from the MRes Science degree course with strong research and transferable skills for doctoral study or STEM posts in industry and business.

**What can you do with a Science degree?**
Career opportunities include:
- PhD study

- Research assistant

- Laboratory management

- Science communication

- Specialist STEM research

- Wider R&D sector jobs

We'll provide you with as much support as possible in finding employment after your course, including through industrial contact, careers events, recruitment fairs and expert sector-specific advice.
