Research Master programmes

The Master of Research degree is an advanced postgraduate degree available especially at Research Universities. Research Masters can also stand for Master's by Research, or Master's in Research ( MRes).

Although a relatively new degree, the MRes is becoming increasingly popular in UK and in the Netherlands. The MRes is designed to prepare students for doctoral research.

Many MRes courses are advanced postgraduate studies which differ from taught Masters degrees because of a large dissertation (typically between 35-40,000 words) in addition to fewer taught modules.

Research Masters is similar to an MPhil, awared to a student who did not completed the full period of study for a PhD. MRes is very useful for those who aiming for a career in the commercial world where research is a key focus but a PhD is not specifically required.

Erasmus University Rotterdam offers 14 Research Masters programmes in the following fields:

  • Economics and Management,
  • Medicine and Health Law,
  • Culture & Society.
