Research Training Modules for Research Masters, IPhD and professional doctorate students

Up to 70 credits of modules on the Research Training Programme can be taken by students on ESRC-recognised Research Masters, IPhD and professional doctorate programmes. These students participate fully alongside the PhD students, and help create the multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural learning environment that we seek to foster on the Programme. 

The modules that can be taken will vary according to your degree programme‌. A detailed outline of modules (also known as HSS modules) available to Research Masters, IPhD students and professional doctorate students are provided in this Handbook:

Each year, The Miller Prize of a £50 book token is awarded for the best overall performance in the Faculty Research Training Programme modules by a research masters student.
