MSc in Biological Anthropology by Research
The MSc in Biological Anthropology by Research is a one year full-time course of supervised research. You can also register to study for this qualification part-time. In this case the length of your course will be at least twice the length for full-time study.
Research students work closely with a supervisory team to undertake a substantial piece of research which must be written up in the form of a thesis. In addition, research students are required to undertake research training, provided by both the university and the department. To see the current research interests of potential supervisors or get more information on previous thesis topics supervised within the department.
To be admitted to do a research degree you must show that you have appropriate training to work independently (with academic guidance from your supervisor) at this level. This will normally involve both an undergraduate degree at upper second or first class level and a supportive references. The department will also need to be satisfied that your proposed research is viable and that we are able to provide appropriate supervision and resources.
