Additional course information

Duration

We offer a 2 year MSc by Res, but students can submit earlier if work is completed. It is very important to bear in mind that since this programme is a two-year programme, the loan company will split the total amount of the loan over two years.

Fees

Students on the MSc byRes can transfer to continuation status if they are in a position where formal submission of the thesis within three-six months is demonstrably possible i.e. approximately 90% of the thesis has been already written. The continuation fee is much lower as students on continuation status are expected to make minimal use of University resources. Currently this is £0 for the first 4 months then £200 for each subsequent 4 month period with refunds given on a monthly pro rata basis if a student submits during this time.

Fees for UK/European and international students.

Funding for research and training (RTSG)

The College of Life and Environmental Sciences provides Research & Training Support Grant (RTSG) funds for self-funded students who would not otherwise have access to a consumables budget. For geography students this is £1,000.
