MRes Medical Science


The MRes in Medical Sciences provides an excellent opportunity for intercalating medical students to expand their horizons in research, allowing them to develop skills and competencies which will serve them well throughout their career. 

Completion of an intercalated MRes degree is an opportunity for medical students to develop more in-depth specialist knowledge in their selected topic and to enhance their skills in scientific research. Undertaking a research-based Master’s degree has been shown to enhance career prospects across variety of clinical specialties, while allowing students to enjoy an immersive research experience in a field of interest. 

Students will be given the opportunity to conduct independent research through practical experience in formulating appropriate research strategies, methods, data collection and analysis via a 12-month research project. Intercalating students will work within a postgraduate, academically challenging environment to develop new and transferable skills that will enhance their professional development.
