MRes Advanced Quantitative Methods

University of Bristol

This MRes programme is only open to 1+3 SWDTP funded PhD students.

It aims to develop a systematic understanding and critical appreciation of alternative approaches, methodologies and paradigms of social science research. It will develop fully trained and competent social science researchers, who are able to understand and use research techniques appropriate to their subject area and are conversant with approaches used by other social scientists.

The programme has a substantial theoretical and quantitative core but also delivers complementary qualitative training. This will provide an essential foundation for any working researcher, whether they are going on to do a PhD or otherwise engaged in research. The training will enable you to think through how you can use your knowledge and skills in advanced quantitative methods in different contexts, apply them to a variety of problems, and then identify your own needs for training.

The MRes forms part of a suite of interdisciplinary pathways that are delivered as part of the South West Doctoral Training Partnership. This pathway is a collaborative programme delivered across the Universities of Bath, Bristol and Exeter. Core units are taught intensively, with time spent at each location. This collaborative delivery means that the expertise of academics at each institution can be made available to students from all three universities, enhancing the training capacity of each.
