Organisation, Work and Technology MRes - 2022 Entry

Entry Year
2022

Duration
Full time 12 Month(s)

Course Overview

The programme is designed to cater for those wishing to study subjects related to Organisation, Work and Technology, but with more focus on theory and/or research rather than practice. It allows greater flexibility in terms of module selection; the Programme is structured around a series of compulsory modules (45 credits) which provide research training, plus:

  • Pathway modules (30 credits) will be chosen to fit the student’s research interests. Pathway modules will be drawn from those that make up the OWT Masters programmes (MSc in HRM, MA in HR and Consulting, or MSc in Digital Business, Innovation and Management), students picking from modules in the programme closest to their research interests.
  • Optional modules (45 credits) will be drawn from OWT (additional modules from OWT programmes) or Faculty of Arts and Social Science (students taking at least 1 FASS module that provides theoretical grounding relevant to their research interest).
  • All students will do a research dissertation (60 credits).

This will allow you to tailor the course to your own aims and interests in order to gain more in-depth knowledge and understanding of the key theories, concepts, and debates in the area.

Please note: the list of available pathways and optional modules are subject to change year on year, and may be subject to timetabling constraints.

This programme would be ideal if you are planning to progress into a PhD in a related area and a career in academia, or seeking employment in social science research and policymaking, such as governments, think tanks and other non-profit organisations, or social research-oriented business functions.

The University will not increase the Tuition Fee you are charged during the course of an academic year.

If you are studying on a programme of more than one year's duration, the tuition fees for subsequent years of your programme are likely to increase each year. The way in which continuing students' fee rates are determined varies according to an individual's 'fee status' as set out on our fees webpages.

Scholarships and Bursaries

At Lancaster, we believe that funding concerns should not stop any student with the talent to thrive.

We offer a range of scholarships and bursaries to help cover the cost of tuition fees and/or living expenses.

Additional course costs and information

There may be extra costs related to your course for items such as books, stationery, printing, photocopying, binding and general subsistence on trips and visits. Following your studies, you may need to pay a subscription to a professional body for some chosen careers.

Specific additional costs for studying at Lancaster are listed below.

College Fees

Lancaster is proud to be one of only a handful of UK universities to have a collegiate system. We have nine colleges in total, and every student belongs to a college, whether you live on campus or choose to commute. All students pay a small college membership fee, which supports the running of college events and activities. Once you have been accepted into a college, you will receive confirmation and be required to pay a college membership fee.

For students starting in 2022, the fee is £40 for undergraduates and research students and £15 for students on one-year courses.

Computer Equipment and Internet access

To support your studies, you will also require access to a computer, along with reliable internet access. You will be able to access a range of software and services from a Windows, Mac, Chromebook or Linux device. For certain degree programmes, you may need a specific device, or we may provide you with a laptop and appropriate software - details of which will be available on relevant programme pages. A dedicated IT support helpdesk is available in the event of any problems.

The University provides limited financial support to assist students who do not have the required IT equipment or Broadband support in place.
