    This Philosophy and Religion (MARes Distance Learning Programme) is a research degree that can be studied through distance learning. It has a duration of one year (full-time) or three years (part-time). The programme is tailor-made to suit your interests in consultation with the areas of expertise offered by the School. It comprises one dissertation of 50,000 words (180 credits).

    You will be assigned a supervisor, who will advise you on your choice of subjects and on any questions related to your academic work. Teaching is by means of regular individual supervision, which can include face-to-face supervision at Bangor, supervision via Skype and telephone, and e-mail.

    Duration

    One year (full-time) or three years (part-time). Students can start this course at the beginning of any given month.

    Bangor University provides a series of transferable skills courses to broaden your portfolio of skills on the Graduate Programme. If you are registering for a higher degree by research on a full-time basis, and have received no previous training in research methodology elements, you may take these courses during your first two years and achieve a minimum of 30 credits. If you accumulate 60 credits, you will be awarded a Postgraduate Certificate of Attainment.

    You may register for the transferable skills courses at the beginning of your degree programme, having consulted your supervisor on which of the courses are most relevant for you. The choice of courses will depend very much upon the nature of your intended programme of research and also upon the topics you covered at first degree level (and subsequently).

    Tutor Support

    All students will receive academic and pastoral support, advice and guidance, throughout the duration of their postgraduate studies


    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.

    Program requirements

    For all School of Philosophy and Religion Masters courses (MARes, MRes, MTh), applicants should normally have an appropriate degree – with a minimum of second class honours (lower second class is acceptable), or alternatively a qualification of experience which is acceptable as equivalent. International applicants will also be required to have relevant English Language qualifications.
