About

The MRes Research in Human Geography is a research training Masters degree at University of Birmingham that provides the skills necessary to undertake a PhD in Human Geography, or for those who want to acquire rigorous research skills more generally.

Overview

The Research in Human Geography programme at University of Birmingham combines interdisciplinary expertise from Geography, Political Science and International Studies, and is truly multidisciplinary.
