    Why have we launched a special edition MRS Advanced Certificate online course?

    Normally, our autumn semester MRS Advanced Certificate course would have started on the 24th of August. But we know that many of you are facing difficult circumstances. You may be working from home and home-schooling at the same time. Or you might have been furloughed or made redundant. Our special edition MRS Advanced Certificate online course is designed to let you study at a slower pace, and prepare yourself for the January 2021 MRS assessment round.

    Is there financial assistance?

    If you’re struggling financially, you may be eligible for an MRBA Skills bursary. Click here to learn more: https://www.mrba.org.uk/skills/.

    About the MRS Advanced Certificate

    The MRS Advanced Certificate is the leading international, degree-level vocational qualification for the research sector. It’s designed for people with up to two years of experience in social or market research. If you want a career in market research, or already work in a junior client-side or agency-side role, this course is right for you!

    The MRS Advanced Certificate will help you establish yourself in the research sector and boost your confidence. Just ask our students! Samantha says, “I started using the material I was learning from day one and I believe that it helped me immensely as I was moving from client to agency side.” And Beatrice says, “I now feel a lot more confident in the decisions I make when reviewing proposals and undertaking my own research, and am well equipped to justify my decisions to the wider business.”

    Why study with us?

    Students love our supportive environment. Here’s how Caroline described her experience with us: “Feedback on the Advanced Certificate coursework is thorough and very constructive, which really helped me improve my work. It feels like your personal tutor is with you every step of the way.” And Stuart felt that “the teaching provided by the Research Academy was exceptional, both in terms of the standard and professionalism of the tutors, and the provision of study tools. In addition, the feedback you receive from your personal tutor is particularly helpful, not just to complete the integrated assessment to a high standard, but to make you become aware of all the things you need to consider when leading on a research project.”
