Improvements to our MRS Advanced Certificate course

Those of you who know us, know that constant improvement isn’t just an empty phrase with us. But this August, we’re really pushing the boat out with improvements to our MRS Advanced Certificate course!

Improvements to our MRS Advanced Certificate course

We’ve spent the past year developing and testing a number of pedagogical and student welfare enhancements to the course. They’ll launch in August 2021, and they include:

  • A live, online mock exam to simulate the exam, to give our students the confidence they need to perform well in the online exam format introduced by the MRS in 2020
  • A group tutorial to discuss students’ performance on the live mock exam
  • A revised revision schedule that mixes mock exam questions across categories, based on peer-reviewed evidence on what best helps students prepare
  • Evidence-based activities proven to enhance academic performance and self-confidence, e.g. an expressive writing exercise and a revision preparedness quiz

I hope you’ll be as excited as we are about the benefits that you – or your colleagues – will gain from these additions!

New to the MRS Advanced Certificate? Here’s why it’s a great qualification

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.”

What’s more, if you do well on the course, you might win an award. Some of our previous students have, and you can do it too!

New to the Research Academy? Here’s why you should 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.”

And finally, as you can see from this post, we regularly make improvements to our MRS Advanced Certificate course.
