Consumer Data Research Centre

Masters Research Dissertation Programme

The Masters Research Dissertation Programme offers an exciting opportunity to link students on Masters courses and their university supervisors with leading retail companies on projects which are important to the retail industry. The scheme provides the opportunity to work directly with an industrial partner and to link students’ research to important retail and ‘open data’ sources. The project titles are devised by retailers and are open to students from a wide range of disciplines.

Applications for our 2017 projects are now live on this page. To apply for any one of the projects please access the application form, complete and email to projects@cdrc.ac.uk along with a copy of your CV. Before applying please visit the details for students page. For queries related to any of the projects, please contact Guy Lansley on g.lansley@ucl.ac.uk.
