Your own research
You can get involved in research projects as early as Year 1, through a student selected component (SSC), and many students get the chance to focus on more research in their longer SSCs in Year 3. See a selection of poems written by students in one of our SSCs below.
In Year 4, you will be working on an individual, in-depth research study one and a half days a week (IRP). Your challenge will be to develop an original hypothesis, design a methodology for your project, get ethical approval if necessary, carry out the research and analyse the data.
It is also possible to continue your research at BSMS through postgraduate study.
