The degree has five main components:
PLINGM01: Research Methods and Statistics
PLINGM02: Theoretical Frameworks
PLINGM04: Research Plan
PLINGM99: Research Project
The Theoretical Frameworks module allows students to choose to attend any two modules in the first, and second term from within the Division of Psychology and Language Sciences (subject to availability) and then complete two pieces of cross-disciplinary coursework based on them.
The transferable skills module is chosen from a selection offered by the UCL Centre for the Advancement of Learning and Teaching (CALT), the modules offered vary from year to year, but recent modules offered to students have been:
Professional Development in Practice
Exploring Postgraduate Writing
The timetable of each MRes Speech, Language and Cognition student is different, although all students attend core statistics teaching, theoretical frameworks teaching will depend on the options chosen.
Programme Director: Dr Bronwen Evans

For the MRes in Speech, Language and Cognition, we normally require a 2.1 BA or BSc in a language-related area such as linguistics, speech sciences, psychology, cognitive science, or a cognate discipline.
Deadline for Applications
A large proportion of our students go on to study for a PhD and pursue a career in academia. The MRes is excellent preparation for a PhD degree and we have been very successful at getting candidates onto funded programmes. A number of graduates have returned to clinical practice as specialised speech and language therapists, or have gone on to work as researchers. Others go on to work in other fields ranging from business to education. The skills that the MRes develops - independent research, presentation skills, statistics - are very highly sought after outside academia.
A number of the undergraduate and Masters degree programmes based at Chandler House are participating in an Open Day event on Thursday, 27 June 2013. A drop in session with the Programme Director of MRes Speech, Language and Cognition will take place at 12:30, there will also be building and library tours.
