This Master of Research at the Queen Margaret University focuses on developing research skills – allowing graduates to maximize their effectiveness in making a difference to organisations, clients and to society at large.


The Master of Research at the Queen Margaret University will give students the skills and experience they need to become successful researchers, and to convey their message to the wider world effectively. Graduates will be very competitively placed to advance their research careers, perhaps by moving on to a PhD.

The MRes is an award that may be the first step towards an academic research career. It would also be relevant for students keen to pursue research in other organisations with client-focused settings.

Why QMU?

  • Our MRes students go on to have successful careers applying their research skills.
  • Focus on your research passions with guidance and support of our expert staff.
  • Our MRes can be very tightly tailored to your research interests and personal situation – it as an extremely flexible programme.

This course is for students with a research interest in any of our subjects. You will be well supported throughout your MRes studies by our team - as well as being mentored by a specific supervisor who is expert in your area.

The course provides opportunities to develop advanced research skills, and assessments are focused on real world relevant outputs (such as a research paper, a consultancy report, or a briefing paper). Individual modules may be available to applicants wishing to acquire particular research skills.


The MRes may be the first stage in an academic career. The skills that you will gain are a sound basis to pursue doctoral studies for a PhD award or a career in undertaking research activities in other organisations, relevant to service users, industry or society.
