Postgraduate Courses

MRes in Evolutionary Biology

Studies available include the evolutionary and behavioural ecology of insects and mammals, genetic variation in wild populations of fungi, ecological genetics and the interface between evolution and development. The MRes course consists of two elements: 160 credits of assessed work based on a research project equivalant of around 10 months research work. 20 credits of non-assessed generic training accumulated from any of the courses offered by The Graduate School. The courses should be chosen by the student in consultation with the supervisor(s) and should have a clear relevance to the general area of research.
