04 Aug Masters of Research (MRes) Information Session – Macquarie University
http://www.hdr.mq.edu.au/information_about/mres Learn more about the new Master of Research (MRes)
Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research) Professor Jim Piper explains the new Master of Research (MRes) at Macquarie University.
In 2013 the University will adopt a new postgraduate degree structure, making it the first Australian university to fully align with European, North American and Asian qualifications. With greater international recognition for their qualifications, graduates of the new degree will enjoy enhanced employment opportunities and pathways to
further study overseas.
Consistent with the well-known ‘Bologna model’, the two-year full-time Master of Research (MRes) will replace honours as the main pathway to a Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) and Master of Philosophy (MPhil).
The new model demonstrates Macquarie’s commitment to research excellence by providing a more intensive research experience for students before beginning doctoral study, as well as better articulation and joint-PhD options with overseas universities.
