Course Summary

The MRes Science and Health course provides two key ingredients for early-career researchers: a width of transferable research skills combined with a depth of expertise in your chosen subject. The benefits of studying for an MRes include: preparation for doctoral study, having an extended and informed experience of research in a specific domain of expertise, and developing higher transferable skills for research-related careers. Many of our students have gone on to successful PhD positions and higher-grade science and business posts. Those students completing the MRes Science course will have moved to the next level of qualifications with the advantages that this offers in terms of learning and employability. They will also be in an excellent position to apply for any related doctoral training programme, research assistant positions, graduate teaching positions, or general research related roles.
