The MA Applied Research can be designed by you to meet your career and research aspirations.
The degree combines developing research applications with real world experience to support your employment options following graduation.
You can study in any of the following academic areas in the University in which we have research expertise.
Policing, Criminal Investigation and Safeguarding
Sport and exercise
We know that everyone learns differently. So not only do we use traditional ways of teaching like lectures, we also use problem-based learning to help you apply your skills.
For this course, you'll:
Work with others on group work
Delve deeper into subject areas in workshops
Be expected to study independently
Our teaching is supported through our Virtual Learning Environment called Blackboard. This means you can access a range of materials to support your lectures wherever you are.
We’ll also assign you a supervisor to support you throughout your research project.
There are two types of assessments: practice (also called formative) or formal (also called summative).
Practice assessments do not count towards your final mark. These are your chance to test your understanding and learn how to improve for the real thing.
You’ll have formal assessments at the end of each module. These could include essays, exams, or portfolios.
After completing the Applied Research Masters, you’ll be equipped to work in research roles.
