MRes Tourism and Hospitality (Travel Writing) (Plymouth University, England)


Your research and practice programme is based on attaining 180 masters-level credits. This comprises a 60-credit module, action research, which updates your skills with the latest methodologies in the field of practice-based research.

The remaining 120 credits are based on a dissertation (25,000 word equivalent). This will encourage you to consider research and analyse an issue, possibly one current in your workplace or that will take your career to the next stage.

Your bespoke programme is designed in agreement with two supervisors and can include fieldwork, study days, seminars, short courses, working weekends, tutorials and the use of Web 2.0 technology. This should mean that your study fits in with the needs of your working life and career.

Practice-based activities allow you to produce professional material for your career and for assessment purposes, often called practicums.
