Course Summary

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. The remaining third consists of a research skills module and an optional module, chosen from a list that includes further research skills and subject-related academic modules. 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.

Unlike traditional MSc courses, our MRes in Health Science is designed specifically to provide you with the maximum opportunity to develop and demonstrate key research skills. The course as a whole will equip you with the knowledge, skills and techniques to carry out independent research effectively. You will also learn about the standards and requirements research entails, and about how to maximise its impact and effectiveness. You will emerge from this course with enhanced research expertise and, crucially, ready to demonstrate leadership in your given area. You will also return to your workplace able to communicate more effectively with clients, their friends and family, and your colleagues.
