Interdisciplinary Masters by Research programme

This interdisciplinary Masters by Research programme focusses on using interdisciplinary research approaches to tackle complex real-world problems.  These projects bring together teams of students and supervisors to address specific research problems from an interdisciplinary perspective.  Each student is registered in their home discipline department, but the student and supervisor team works together in YCCSA, jointly tackling a real research problem, whilst learning interdisciplinary research skills.  Successful students will graduate with a Masters by Research degree from their department.

In addition to project-specific requirements (see below), successful applicants will have

  • a demonstrable track record in project working, for example, a first class undergraduate project
  • a strong interest in pursuing interdisciplinary research
  • strong team working skills and experience
  • your own source of funding for the degree programme
