International Institute for Accelerator Applications
The International Institute for Accelerator Applications offers a wide variety of research opportunities including PhD and Master’s by Research.
The PhD is the mainstream route to a career in research, academia or elsewhere. Those whose interest in their subject has been aroused by their undergraduate studies and who want to go further and deeper into the subject may see a PhD as a natural progression.
The Master’s by Research course includes both research methods training in the relevant discipline and a substantial research project. This is an invaluable option if you are planning to progress to a PhD. A Master’s by Research is also useful if you’re considering a career in the commercial world where research is a key focus but a PhD is not specifically required.
In addition we offer a taught Master’s course that provides a way of defining, or perhaps redefining, your career path. The Master’s provides a structured set of supported taught modules, as well as including a substantial research component. You can find more information on this course by clicking here
