What our students say

Completing my MRes at the University of Glasgow was a wonderful experience and I recommend the program to students who wish to further their knowledge and research skills.  Numerous learning opportunities were provided across a broad range of subjects and support and guidance from supervisors was invaluable. The experience gained throughout my MRes studies contributed to my success in obtaining a PhD scholarship and publishing my results in a peer-reviewed journal.

My year studying the MRes at the University of Glasgow was a great year in which I learnt so much and had an amazing time. The course, which has a strong focus on statistics and programming and the opportunity to conduct an 8-month research project, accelerates your career in ecological research. The lecturers and researchers are all so welcoming and supportive should you ever need any extra help or advice. I was also incredibly lucky to live at our field station SCENE on the bursary scheme where I made great friends with the staff and other students working and living there. I was able to study and work surrounded by an outstanding natural area on the shores of Loch Lomond.

Studying the MRes at the University of Glasgow has been a wonderful and invaluable experience. The MRes programme was full of challenging courses that improved my research skills to conduct my master project and to continue a career as a life sciences researcher. The 8-month project gave me the opportunity to work for several months with top professionals within a research group in a field of my interest. This group was very supportive during the whole programme and nowadays we are working to publish the results in a peer-reviewed journal. As an international student, I am thankful for all the support received from the IBAHCM staff and University of Glasgow itself to feel at home. Furthermore, I was positively impressed by the organisation of the master programme and the excellent work environment in the IBACHM.
