MRes Research Project (Aberystwyth)
The main focus of the work should be the review and analysis of existing data from the participant's workplace.
The short thesis (20,000 words) is intended to provide both meaningful research for the industry, and for DAg candidates, a solid foundation for the longer Part II thesis and this should be considered in terms of the ultimate aim of embedding research within the place of work and providing direct and effective knowledge exchange of benefit to the company.
Research Methods (Aberystwyth)
This module provides the tools necessary for carrying out independent research. Covering qualitative and qualitative statistical methods for analyzing data, the module builds towards participants identifying a suitable dissertation topic. The participant will be taught to evaluate existing research published in a range of different sources and evaluate the different knowledge exchange mechanisms that are appropriate to the audience.
This module is compulsory for anyone intending to undertake a full MSc or who has been accepted for a research degree (Research Masters or Professional Doctorate). It runs twice a year for five months. The additional length of the module is to allow you the time to work with your supervisor in developing the research proposal for your MSc, MRes or Doctoral research.
