MRes - Master of Research
Health Studies Medical Sciences
This Health Science MRes course will give you an important understanding of research techniques and management principles, equipping you with the tools to pursue a career in scientific research, possibly through a PhD, or to develop your career as a health professional. You will spend two-thirds of the course on a supervised individual research project within one of the research groups in the School of Health, Sport and Bioscience.
Whether you are working in the NHS, private health services, community health organisations or the related commercial sector, you will benefit from the supercharging effect of a year (or two years part-time) in a superbly resourced environment which is helping produce research internationally recognised as being of the highest quality.
Your Future Career
Working closely with experienced researchers on internationally recognised projects will give you an invaluable insight into what a career in high-level scientific work entails. Your own experience and capacity to conduct research will be hugely enhanced if you decide to embark on a PhD. You will be able to demonstrate your ability to conduct a piece of independent research, and your awareness of and ability to implement good research practice. Being attached to research groups of such standing will also give you a good opportunity to develop your research and have it published.
Some of our graduates have gone on to pursue further research abroad. Some overseas students have become professors or lecturers in universities in their home countries. Other graduates have returned to careers within NHS or other healthcare sectors with the skills required to take up new levels of responsibility. Whether you’re a podiatrist, a speech therapist or a nurse – if you work in any kind of clinical setting, particularly within the NHS – you will find your career progression will be hindered unless you can demonstrate management competencies.
