Why Study Psychology (MRes) with us?

On our MRes course, over 75% of your time will be dedicated to conducting your own research project, with expert supervision. The remaining time is spent learning how to design a study, collect and analyse data, and write up and disseminate your findings. The key to any MRes course is the availability of supervision with expertise relevant to your research question. Chester’s Psychology Department offers a broad range of experience and expertise, covering both applied areas and fundamental psychological science.

If you are considering applying, please note that it is necessary before applying to have checked with the course leader (Dr Lee Hulbert-Williams) whether the department has the capacity to supervise your proposed project. The course leader can also put you in touch with potential supervisors who may be able to support you in developing a research idea to begin with. Please feel free to use our enquiry form to contact Dr Hulbert-Williams. Please note the application deadline is 10th September 2018, and it is therefore desirable to start the process well in advance of this date.
