Master of Research project in Frome

The University of Bath has a full-time Masters of Research studentship – as part of a project addressing issues of social and economic development in Frome.

The Department of Social & Policy Sciences, in partnership with Frome Town Council, is looking to undertake a research project aimed at supporting local organisations in Frome, as they collaborate to address problems of austerity and to promote prosperity and wellbeing in the town.

In association with this research, applications are invited for a studentship to pursue a full-time Masters of Research (MRes) in the Department of Social & Policy Sciences, commencing in October 2016.

MRes Social Policy

The MRes Social Policy is an apprenticeship in social research.  It is good preparation for doing a PhD, but it is also a qualification in its own right for anyone wanting to pursue a career as a social researcher.

The course involves taught courses and three applied research projects, spread out through the year. For this studentship, the projects will address issues of social and economic development in Frome. To see the full details of this role, as well as entrance criteria see The University of Bath’s website here:http://www.bath.ac.uk/sps/studentship-energising-local-communities.html 

The closing date for the receipt of applications is midday Wednesday 31 August 2016.


Interviews are scheduled for the afternoon of Friday 16 September commencing at 1.00pm.


Informal enquiries regarding the project can be made to Dr Jean Boulton.

Enquiries regarding the application process should be addressed to Isla Holmes (Postgraduate Admissions Officer).
