The MRes in Forensic Anthropology & Bioarchaeology is a combination taught and research postgraduate course. The structure of the programme allows for a high degree of flexibility to accommodate each student's background knowledge level, personal and project requirements in terms of learning, research and professional development. The taught component of the programme focuses on advancing academic knowledge and expanding professional conduct. It aims to develop research, analytical and professional skills. The programme is split in to three phases as detailed below. The first two phases are overseen by Centre for Forensic Anthropology and Bioarchaeology at the Cyprus Institute of Science & Humanities. The third phase is through an advanced standing arrangement with the Faculty of Arts, Science & Technology at Wrexham Glyndwr University.
The course structure may facilitate distant learning fully or partially. This means that if the student is not a resident of Cyprus, they may choose to remain in their home country or study from anywhere else in the world. The candidate is expected to be in Cyprus at least once during the period of instruction in order to complete modules which have class based attendance and the dates of these will be issued to students in advance. They may also choose to conduct their research in Cyprus if they would like to make use of the Cyprus Reference Collection. The length of time here is variable depending on the needs of the project.
