Are you ready to become one of the next top scientists in your field? Then the Mid Sweden University Master by Research Programme is the perfect choice for you! Here, you will develop skills and knowledge for a bright future career in academic research, or in industrial or public R&D.


Your indivi­dual project starts day one and will lead to a Master thesis after two years. You will carry out research in a research group together with the PhD students, and be individually supervised. Research at Mid Sweden University is partly organized in research centres and partly in subject research and research groups, and some of them are world leading in their field!
